French: Current governor on "glide path" to November

SITKA, ALASKA Hollis French says Alaska’s current governor is on a “glide path” to the November statewide election.
French, a state senator from Anchorage, is one of two remaining major contenders for the Democratic nomination for governor in next week’s primary, following the withdrawal of businessman Bob Poe.
French was in Sitka last week for his second visit of the primary campaign. He spoke with KCAW’s Robert Woolsey about the issues, and what separates him from his rival for the nomination, former House Minority Leader Ethan Berkowitz.
