Alaska: Don Young wins; Ted Stevens is now losing

Alaska Congressman Don Young has won his reelection fight against Democrat Ethan Berkowitz. That’s one less for Nancy’s majority, but at this point, it doesn’t matter a whit. At least the seat stays Republican and, with an entrenched Governor Sarah Palin, Alaska Republicans can find a candidate to primary him in two years.

Ted Stevens is not faring so well in his battle to retain his Senate seat, falling behind Democrat Paul Begich. If Stevens can pull this out, his recent felony convictions will disqualify him from serving and he will be replaced by Republican Governor Palin.

Are eyes are still on Alaska.
