Stevens Applauds Gov. Palin for Being Strong Alaska Advocate
Senator Ted Stevens commended Alaska Governor and Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin for championing Alaska issues and values during tonight's debate.
"Governor Palin has once again made all Alaskans proud. From the need to lower energy costs to the importance of decreasing taxes, Sarah proved that she is a true champion for American families," said Senator Stevens. "She also stood tall for Alaska. I am pleased that Governor Palin reassured Alaskans that she will continue to serve as a strong advocate for opening ANWR. She sent a strong message that Alaska plays a critical role in our nation's energy independence and that increased domestic production is a key. The Governor will be a tremendous Vice President and representative for Alaska on the national stage."
