Nick Begich gets unanimous endorsement from Eagle River District 22 Republicans for congressional race


Adding to his growing list of endorsements, Republican congressional candidate Nick Begich was unanimously endorsed by District 22 Republicans. Those are the Republicans in the newly renumbered House district in Eagle River. About 20 people attended the district meeting, including the officers of the district, Alaska Republican Party Chairman Craig Campbell, and Assemblywoman Jamie Allard.

Begich also received District 6 in Homer and the Kenai Peninsula Republican Women’s endorsement over the weekend. Monday’s endorsement is a sign that Republicans are beginning to coalesce around a candidate to support for the congressional seat made vacant when Congressman Don Young passed away on March 18. Begich has over 100 other endorsements from Alaskans from Ketchikan to Fairbanks and has been raising individual-donor funds to mount a serious statewide campaign.


  1. Interesting how Nick’s uncle, Mark Begich, referred to him as “Nicholas” on Mike Porcaro’s show the other day. It came across as a little bit of a dig, the way a parent does when they use a kids full title, when they mess-up.
