Friday on Alaska News Nightly:

Natural gas has been a target of climate activists in Scotland, so where does that leave Alaska’s vast reserves? Also, Sen. Lisa Murkowski dismisses attacks from Trump as she files for reelection. And a first-time Indigenous musical festival felt like a family reunion.

Reports tonight from:

Liz Ruskin in Washington D.C.
Lex Treinen and Tripp Crouse in Anchorage
Jeremy Hsieh in Juneau
Eric Stone in Ketchikan
and Mary Auld in Fairbanks
