JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dan Sullivan has agreed to participate in a debate on fisheries issues after all.

Sullivan was criticized by the campaign of Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Begich and others for a decision to forgo the Oct. 1 event in Kodiak in favor of a campaign swing in rural Alaska.

Spokesman Mike Anderson said Friday that Sullivan recognizes the importance of Alaska’s fisheries. He said the campaign made some scheduling changes to ensure that Sullivan could participate in the debate, and he said Sullivan is excited to do so.

The change was reported by KMXT, which is slated to broadcast the event.
