UPDATE: I have been following the comments regarding Don Young today with interest. Your opinions are important to me and our team, so having read another comment just now asking for an explanation of our endorsement, I wanted to make sure you heard from me directly.
Don Young has been a consistent pro-family, pro-life vote in the Congress. Don also endorsed my campaign and stood by me in the public arena defending my record from false attacks when other members of Congress wouldn't be seen with me. I don't expect everyone to agree with each endorsement we make. I am thankful that we are able to talk about our differences openly and respectfully. Thank you for your comments.
Representative Don Young is running for re-election in Alaska.
A strong conservative Don Young’s stance on the issues makes him a Huck PAC endorsed candidate.
Don Young has focused on:
1. Making America energy independent.
2. Improving our nation’s infrastructure.
3. A strong military and defense.
He currently serves as the ranking member on the Resources Committee.
“Don is one of the few members of Congress to totally understand the critical state of our nation’s infrastructure and when I was a Governor and Chairman of the National Governors Association, he was one of the few members of Congress who fully recognized the direct link between infrastructure and job creation and economic development. I consider him a personal friend and have enjoyed duck hunting with him, but I didn’t enjoy the fact that he is such a marksman that he put the rest of us to shame” Huckabee said.
“I am at the same time humbled, thrilled, and deeply appreciative of Governor Mike Huckabee's endorsement. The Governor is a true conservative who has motivated and inspired many Americans, including myself, by standing for what is good about and good for our nation. I look forward to continuing to team with Mike and Huck PAC in supporting those same issues that resonate with Alaskans -- life and the preservation of individual liberty, our families and their security, a strong national defense, and less government.” Young said.
