ANCHORAGE — The candidates for Alaska’s lone U.S. House seat made one last pitch for the job on Monday, with U.S. Rep. Don Young saying opponent Sharon Cissna can’t do anything that he’s been able to do.
Young touted his seniority during an Anchorage Chamber of Commerce forum, and said he’s already planning to run again in 2014.
Young is seeking re-election to a 21st term on Tuesday. If he wins, Young, 79, would be poised to become the longest-serving member of Alaska’s congressional delegation, edging out the late Ted Stevens, who served 40 years in the U.S. Senate.
