It would be a lot better for Byron Mallott to join up with Bill Walker and be lieutenant governor than to be third place in the election that gets you nothing. It puts Byron in a good position to be governor down the line. Also Alaska needs Byron and Bill in that governor spot because of the hard times Parnell is going to deliver to Alaska in the next year or two. The oil companies are going to push hard for Parnell to get in. They need AFL-CIO organization to counter that. They can’t win on their own. Patience is what Byron needs.
He needs to take little steps to get where he wants to go and he will get there in time. Take a poll on this and you will see that together they would win and apart they will lose. Better to win something than to lose and have nothing.
