Thursday night Washington U.S. Senator Maria Cantwell (D) popped into Anchorage for a quick visit. It was a low profile appearance for a Senator who could have a could have a huge impact on the future of our state. If Democrats retake control of the Senate, Cantwell would be positioned to replace Alaska’s Sen. Lisa Murkowski as Chairwoman of the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee giving her great sway over the resource issues that largely drive Alaska’s economy and unique lifestyle.
Don talks Donald and secession, The Governor shows up, and campaign dirty tricks abound. It’s Friday in the Sun!!!!
“It was nonetheless a victory over partisan gridlock — the product of weekly lunch and breakfast meetings between Murkowski and Cantwell, followed by several committee hearings and six weeks of bipartisan negotiations.”
