It’s ‘V’ Day – so VOTE!

Lisa Murkowski

Alaska is poised at the edge of what could become an economic train wreck. Oil in the pipeline is declining. The proposed gas line is moving by fits and starts. Alaska’s economy is stalled. Murkowski is the right person for the state to have in Washington, D.C., to help steer us clear of the potential mess and keep the federal government at bay.
