… Congratulations , Dan Sullivan [#US Senate]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 27th,2014

.. you just may well be the next US Senator from Alaska …

.. Mark Begich ‘ s win in 2008 was a fluke . Yes , he was the 2 – term mayor of Anchorage . However , normally , challenging the senior US Senator of the GOP [Ted Stevens] is a fools ‘ errand . However , the US Justice Department and the US Atty went wild …

.. the US Atty sought and received an indictment of Stevens and a friend for corruption . The indictment was flimsy , but the timing was worse . It was done deliberately during the 2008 campaign year , in order to derail Stevens ‘ re – election campaign . Which it did …

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the news article …

.. even so , Begich barely won , by a margin of a few thousand votes . Stevens ‘ conviction was thrown out by a federal judge , and the proposed re – trial was overruled [amazingly so] by the Department of InJustice . Unfortnuately , Ted Stevens is no longer with us . He died in a plane crash in the fall of 2010 …

.. Dan Sullivan is the former 1 – term AG of Alaska . He is a long – time public servant , as well as a USMC veteran . He should have a good chance at unseating Begich , because Begich is polling well below 50% in most polls …

.. Good luck , Dan !! …
