Challenger gets chippy with Don Young, but then gets schooled

Alyse Galvin is the latest Democrat to try to unseat Congressman Don Young, and she tried up knock him off his game today during the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce debate that left many shaking their heads at her.

Galvin read aloud her prepared attacks on Young, but the impression she gave was that if the seasoned warrior was for something, then she was simply against it, and she was going to read him her riot act.

After initially appearing annoyed, Young finally called her out on her nastiness, “I am amazed to listen to my so-called opponent,” said Don Young. “She’s already nasty. I thought this was going to be a civilized campaign,” he said.

Observers said this was a clear Don Young victory today and that Galvin weakened her position by appearing so negative.

The former merchant marine, teacher, state representative, state senator, and congressman for all Alaska for the last 44 years, who is now Dean of the U.S. House was unfazed, having fended off attacks over the course of more than 20 campaigns.

Later in the evening, he met with supporters in Eagle River at the Eagle River Ale House.

  • Lets remember all the things that Mark Begich promised Alaska that he would do for the state when he was running for U S Senate and after he was elected. Most notable was that he would work hard to open ANWAR. What is Mr. Begich most notable for in his six years in the U S Senate, one of the 60 votes that gave the nation Obamacare. ANWAR, was never even brought up.

  • Alyse Galvin was a founder of Great Alaska Schools. She failed miserably at making them Great! Now she will fail as a candidate.

  • Galvin is an independent, not a democrat. Please report accurately.
