I started near the Anchorage Campaign Headquarters center - Fairbanks Street near Northern Lights. Fairbanks houses the McAdams campaign, the Democratic headquarters, Democratic State Legislators headquarters, and the Parnell headquarters.
Down Fairbanks St. is the McAdams office. Doesn't look like they are wasting any money on rent. This is decidedly down-scale.
But, what about the food?
McAdams volunteer food looks pretty good.
Then back to Northern Lights to the Miller headquarters. But when I got there, I found out there were two different Miller headquarters on Northern Lights. One for staff and another one - further down - for volunteers.
So, back on the bike and further down down Northern Lights to this office.
Hmmmm, there they are right between the Great Alaska Pizza Company and Quiznos. Plus there is an Indian restaurant and a Korean restaurant just behind me and to the right. So they should have terrific food.
Not too much here.
Now up Arctic to 36th to the Murkowski headquarters, right next to the European watch repair.
So, I walked into the door straight ahead there, but didn't see much food. Plus there was a sign for volunteers to go next door.
Next door I found two people at a table that had a jar of hard candies. That couldn't be all there was. I told someone what I was doing and she took me back to where I started and found Kristi
She also said sure when I asked to use their restroom, where I found a bit of campaign humor.
Finally, she showed me a Murkowski trend setter - campaign bracelets. She showed me hers and explained they were to help people remember what to write in.
I asked if they would be allowed into a polling place and she assured me that they had been approved "as long as they are kept under a sleeve" until they get into the voting booth.
That's going to be easy to monitor I'm sure.
So, if how you feed your volunteers correlates with winning elections, and if what I saw was representative of how the three campaigns feed their volunteers, then McAdams will win hands down.
