Letter to the editor: Alaska gives bipartisan example to the Lower 48

Every day, news media tell us that our country is in one of the most polarized times in its recent past. Congress could learn from Alaska’s congressional delegation. Mark Begich and Lisa Murkowski have been shown to vote together 80 percent of the time in the Senate and frequently work with Don Young in the House of Representatives. They are a model of bipartisanship for the rest of the Senate. Mark works to solve Alaska’s issues, demonstrating to all Alaskans a commitment, despite ideological differences, to our unique issues. Mark is very practical in working across the aisle to further Alaska’s interests. He has earned our support.
