JUNEAU- State Natural Resources Commissioner Dan Sullivan is resigning amid speculation he'll run for an Alaska U.S. Senate seat next year.

The news comes as another Republican, Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell, officially launched his campaign for Senate on Thursday.
Sullivan plans to resign effective Sept. 24. In his resignation letter to Gov. Sean Parnell, he says he intends to seek ways to serve his fellow Alaskans as he explores "new opportunities and challenges" in the next phase of his life.
Sullivan was returning from a conference in Asia and not immediately available for comment.
Sullivan was appointed DNR commissioner in 2010; before that, he served as Alaska attorney general and in the administration of President George W. Bush.
He was recently deployed to Afghanistan after being recalled to active military duty.

We need to find someone to replace Mark Begich. Begich has left financial disasters in his wake every time he changed offices and the senate has been no different. While marching lock step with Obama, he has cost America more than 9,000,000 jobs, increased food stamp recipients by 112% and raised welfare recipients by 44%. When he left, after a questionable election process, Anchorage he and his CFO were found guilty of fraud, using smoke and mirrors to hide the poor job they had done until after the senate elections. obamacare which he also supported has been deemed a train wreck by the people that wrote it.
