In November’s recount, former Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich narrowly beat Senator Ted Stevens -- the longest serving Republican in U.S. history. Libby Casey talked about key figures in Alaska politics and the role they have nationally in bringing money to their state. She discussed Senator Stevens, the Murkowski family (former Senator and Governor Frank and his daughter, Senator Lisa Murkowski), Representative Don Young, Senator-Elect Begich’s future in the Senate with a Democratic majority, and what will happen next in Senator Stevens' criminal trial. Ms. Casey responded to telephone calls and electronic mail. close
