JUNEAU — The longest-serving Republican in the U.S. House has remarried, tying the knot on his 82nd birthday.
Rep. Don Young’s office says the Alaska Republican married 76-year-old Anne Garland Walton during a private ceremony Tuesday in the chapel of the U.S. Capitol. The House chaplain officiated.
Both Young and Walton are widowed. Young’s wife, Lu, died in 2009. In August, he introduced Walton as his fiancee, to applause, during an Anchorage church event.
Young was elected to a 22nd term last fall.
