Berkowitz wishes Young well after win

Posted: Wednesday, November 19, 2008

ANCHORAGE - Democratic challenger Ethan Berkowitz has congratulated Rep. Don Young on his win in the U.S. House race.

Berkowitz said that he called Young and his wife, Lu, on Tuesday to wish them well in what will be Young's 19th term in Congress.

The Associated Press declared Young the winner last Wednesday, after Young received 50 percent of the vote compared to Berkowitz's 45 percent.

Many of the remaining votes were counted Tuesday with the percentages staying the same.

The race was the toughest in Young's long political career. The 75-year-old was returned to office despite being under investigation and linked to an ongoing corruption scandal.
