Crawford mulling another run for Legislature

Posted: December 11, 2013 - 8:07am

JUNEAU — Former state Rep. Harry Crawford is considering another run for the Alaska Legislature.

Crawford didn’t specify an office in his recently filed letter of intent but tells The Associated Press he is choosing between state House and Senate.

Crawford served five terms in the House before mounting a failed bid to unseat Republican U.S. Rep. Don Young in 2010.

In 2012, Crawford lost the Democratic primary for an Anchorage Senate seat to then-Sen. Bettye Davis. Davis ultimately lost the seat to Eagle River Republican Anna Fairclough.

Crawford is eyeing the seats currently held by Rep. Lance Pruitt and Sen. Cathy Giessel. Crawford says he believes he could win the House seat but would like to serve in the Senate.

He plans to make a decision in the next few weeks.
