  2. It would be interesting if she challenged the TSA on the constitutionality of preventing the free travel of members of congress, as Rand Paul hinted at when he was detained.

    That'd be a brilliant way to drag them into the public limelight in a very tight spot. I hope she does, or figures out some other way to really put the thumbscrews to them.

    Alaska is still voting, I'll add a CNN link to the base post that might have early returns/estimates when their polling places close.

    Go Sharon! I'd put money that she'd sue them for preventing her from traveling freely....

    Does not look good for Sharon. With about a quarter of the precincts in, her opponent (a Republican incumbent in a Republican state) is beating her by a 2:1 margin.
     
  7. I voted for Ms. Cissna, but it's just as well she didn't win. Her economic vision for Alaska is very naive, basically a controlled decline. Representative Young is an entrenched old boy, but at least he generally takes a small government stance, and occasionally puts forth legislation to support it.
