Republican Senator Dan Sullivan's campaign was interrupted by a protester who had a 'gift' for him. Held at an airport hangar in Anchorage, the Senator was speaking when a protester interrupted him. Kathleen Bonnar walked up and asked if she can give him a gift. Local station KTUU reported that her move to throw the caribou heart at the Senator.
Campaign manager Mat Shuckerow knocked Bonnar. Other protesters tried to stir up mayhem but were kicked out. Shuckerow said, "By rushing the stage, reaching for a concealed item within a bag, physically assaulting people on the Senator's staff, attempting to restrain their movements. It created a very dangerous environment and a very serious security threat that was responded to."
