If you really examine Sarah's past, she just isn't cut out for serious representation work. She is a pretty face with an outgoing personality, but she is just as likely to compromise on serious issues!

I don’t think so. Palin is tea party. She’ll vote tea party

Agreed. She would be solid on tea party line. If they were so easy to keep in line we would not have our twin PsOS Senators. I would take either of them as Senators before what we have.

I don't put very much stock in what politicians say, I go by what they have done. Palin stood up to Exxon over Pt. Thompson and fought for us in many other ways. She was the highest rated governor in the country. Her only fault was being TOO ethical -- she should have KEPT her job as Governor while she ran with McCain. I also remember the last time we had a "Nick Begich" in Congress.

My only regret is that she isn't taking on Murkowski instead, because I think Sarah is probably the only one who could beat the Republican-hating idiot.

I remember what she did too. She tucked tail and quit when the going got rough. We don't need another quitter, even if its just an interim quittter.

Her ethics are my biggest problem with her. And that does not include quitting. She was being sued by everyone, like Trump was being hammered. Her legal bills were mounting and she felt it best for the State. I agree with her on quitting.

The Trooper-gate issue was huge and she had plenty of other problems with dealing with her own life and family and using her powers in the wrong way.

Palin is just a vote at this point. She’s annoying AF which might cause a few liberals Heads to explode.

I just don’t think I can trust a Begich. That is one rotten vine. I hope I’m wrong about him.


May the road rise up to meet you.

May the wind be always at your back.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;

the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,

may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I think she’ll vote just like Young and Steven’s- “what’s best for Alaska” which really means as long as there’s earmarks for the AK gimmedats.

Remember ACES, her opposition to SB-21 and “Alaskans fair share?”

I’m sure glad my friends don’t judge me by my dad, uncle and grandfather. I have very different political opinions than them.

You are right but still would you vote for a Clinton, Pelosi or Schumer relative because they claimed to be conservative. I may be 100 percent wrong about him. I truly hope I am. I haven’t made up my mind yet who to vote for. I have more research and contemplation to do.

These particulars… probably not given the circumstances of their upbringing. However the Begich’s of Alaska (I hope) were not as polluted as your average Clinton or Pelosi.

I’m no smarter than the next guy, but Nick Becgich III seems to be a Conservative based on his positions throughout his public life here in the valley.

I call Nick a “BINO”.


Begich In Name Only.


Really, don’t blame him.

This is definitely a case of name recognition being a double edged sword for young Nick.

Okay. You guys have caused me to do a bit more research. Looks like I’ll cast my vote his way. I like Sarah but don’t think she’s congressional material.

Sarah has a ton of actual political and leadership experience. What does Nick have in regard to those things?

He might be a great guy and a conservative but so what? Running ads showing himself shooting a shotgun with a revolver on his belt led me to believe he wasn't very bright.

And I'm a guy who spends 3 or 4 days a week at the gun range.
