JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Independent gubernatorial candidate Bill Walker has declined to say who he’ll vote for in Alaska’s U.S. Senate race.

The question arose during a gubernatorial debate on Monday. The Senate race features Democratic Sen. Mark Begich and GOP challenger Dan Sullivan.

Republican Gov. Sean Parnell said he would vote for Sullivan. Walker answered the question by saying there would be a Walker-Mallott campaign sign in his yard.

Walker changed his party affiliation from Republican to undeclared to run with Democrat Byron Mallott as part of a so-called unity ticket. Begich has backed Walker.

Walker later said he was staying in his own lane.

Mallott was a prominent supporter of Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s write-in campaign in 2010. Murkowski said she didn’t know if she would endorse in the governor’s race.
