ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Congressman Don Young announced Friday he's named Steven Dougherty as his new campaign manager.
Dougherty replaces Curtis Thayer, who left the position to take a job with Enstar Natural Gas in Anchorage. Dougherty will take on his new responsibilities May 1.
Dougherty was Thayer's deputy during the 1998 campaign and worked on the 1996 campaign as well. More recently, he was a manager at the Resource Development Council in Anchorage.
Young, a Republican, announced this week that he is running for his 15th term as the state's only member of Congress. He has held the seat in Washington since 1973.
