JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) - Alaska Gov. Bill Walker is asking supporters to remove his campaign signs from public view.

Walker last week ended his re-election bid, days after his lieutenant governor, Byron Mallott, resigned over what Walker described as an inappropriate overture to a woman.

In a statement Friday, Walker said any reserved ad space that can’t be reimbursed will be used to make clear that he has ended his campaign and to thank supporters.

Walker and Mallott remain on the general election ballot because the deadline for candidates to withdraw was in September.

Walker has said he thinks Democrat Mark Begich would be better for Alaska than Republican Mike Dunleavy.

A large Walker Mallott sign stood Friday morning at Mallott’s Juneau home.

Mallott was replaced as lieutenant governor by Valerie Davidson.
