Alaska GOP candidates clash on immigration

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Thousands of miles from the U.S-Mexico border, the major Republican candidates for U.S. Senate in Alaska clashed on immigration in a televised debate Sunday night. Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell, former state Natural Resources commissioner Dan Sullivan and tea party favorite Joe Miller are vying for the GOP nomination for the seat held by Democratic Sen. Mark Begich, who is seeking re-election. The primary is Aug. 19. Treadwell and Sullivan have rejected Miller's calls to sign a pledge rejecting so-called amnesty for people in this country illegally. Sullivan, the presumptive front-runner, called for better securing the U.S. border. Treadwell signaled a willingness to establish a pathway to citizenship, saying those here illegally should pay a penalty and have to wait behind those going through the proper channels to be in the country.
