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