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 did, too, and he signaled support for letting those here illegally stay in the country if they pay a fine and wait behind those who immigrated legally for permits.
