ANCHORAGE- Alaska Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell is officially launching his campaign for U.S. Senate.
Treadwell, who announced his intention to run in June, has events planned for Anchorage and Fairbanks on Thursday.
Treadwell was elected to his current post in 2010 and is one of several Republicans who have announced plans to seek the seat currently held by Democrat Mark Begich. The election is next year.
Treadwell is casting himself as the conservative candidate in the race. Joe Miller, a tea party favorite during his unsuccessful Senate run in 2010, has long described himself as a constitutional conservative.
Other, lesser-known candidates running as Republicans John Jaramillo and Kathleen Tonn.
Treadwell's campaign co-chairs will be former University of Alaska President Mark Hamilton and Catkin Burton.
