The ad captures the spirit of Alaska with intense music and images that express the feeling of this immense state. Alaskans live a different life far from Washington DC, one that requires very hard work and sturdy people willing to fight for lives. They are self-reliant as they sit separated from the nation’s capital and even most of the country, 4,266 miles 70 hours by car and nine and a half hours by plane. Meet independent Dr. Al Gross.

Who is behind this powerful ad, anyway? Those intrepid Republicans and former Republicans sacrificing their careers to bring Donald Trump down. They are doing it for us, our country, and most importantly, our very Democracy. They are, of course, The Lincoln Project.
Lisa Murkowski’s (R-AK) name is not easy to spell, yet when she went for the write-in vote up against other opponents, the people of Alaska spelled it right and sent her to the Capitol. The independent senator stands up against the Republican political machine and Donald Trump. She would easily be the lone dissenter against a sham Supreme Court pick, if she must. But what about this orthopedic surgeon Dr. Al Gross?
Coming out strong with intense music and a gravelly voice, the narrator let us know he was going to make a few, intense comparisons. There was Washington DC and it’s music-box music as the voice explained what a mountain (hill) was in the nation’s Capitol. Then, there are Alaska’s majestic, awe-inspiring mountains. The voice said:
‘Ours are bigger.’
The music-box music showed a DC bird, a tiny little bluebird. Then, cue the intense music. The ad shows us Alaska’s bird, an eagle raptor coming in for its kill. Its extended claws capable of exerting 1,000 pounds per square inch (psi).
Washington had the cherry blossoms, while Alaska has vast forests of old-growth coniferous trees. DC had its inflatable pandas, and Alaska has grizzlies weighing up to 1700 pounds.
The east coast Capitol’s idea of work for Senator Dan Sullivan (R) has been soft, lazy, complacent. Al Gross hauls huge fish out of the sea and manhandles them into his boat. The voice comes back:
‘We are bigger, bolder, tougher.
‘Al Gross is a senator big enough to make Washington work for Alaska.
‘Dan Sullivan, well, he’s not big enough for the job.’
Gross comes up from his fishing boat grinning:
‘Alaska is big. Dan Sullivan is small…Alaska needs big.’
Words do not do it justice.
Twitter world went nuts over this ad. Check out what our Not-Republicans had to say below:
