2012 Elections: Who Not To Vote For In Alaska

2012 Elections: Who Not To Vote For In Alaska

In Alaska, there are no races for Governor or for the US Senate. Therefore, within the state, there is only one spot up for grabs: the lone US Representative spot in Alaska. That position is held by Rep. Don Young (R) who is seeking his 21st term.

His opponent is Alaska State Rep. Sharon Cissna (D). If Rep. Young hasn't lost in 40 years, then there is no point to run against him. He has plenty of connections with the oil companies, so voting against him would be detrimental to the state of Alaska because the majority of the state economy is predicated upon oil production.

Second, State Rep. Sharon Cissna has been banned by the TSA from flying. Why spend extra tax dollars for Rep. Cissna to travel over five thousand miles to and from Alaska to Washington, DC when the only two options are by boat or by rail?
