Unlike some Democratic Senate candidates, incumbent Mark Begich of Alaska is willing to say he voted for President Obama.
But he’s also found a way to distance himself from the president, who is unpopular in reddish Alaska.
“I did (vote for him), but that’s irrelevant,” Begich told the Washington Examiner. “The president’s not relevant. He’s gone in two years.”
I would just like to remind Alaska voters that if you like the Senator you have, you can keep him.
Preferably, right there in Alaska.
