  •  Sunshine in dark Alaska. 23-year old Democrat (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Jonathon Kreiss Tomkins, holds his win in recount against Rep. Bill Thomas, incumbent Republican, in SE Alaska district that includes Haines, Sitka, and numerous village communities in Southeast Alaska, a district gerry-mandered to the extent possible for a win by the incumbent.

    JKT wins by 32!!

    A rising star to watch in Alaska, JKT worked on Howard Dean's campaign a few years ago.  This summer he showed Alaskans how to win a race one door knock, one voter at a time in a district where one has to travel much by boat and plane to reach constituents.

    Attended Yale, climbs mountains, a cellist, and a policy wonk that looks to the future for the benefit of all.  SE is definitely a brighter place today--even with ongoing snowstorms.

    This is for state legislature.  We still have to tackle Don Young in the U.S. House in 2014.   And keep Sen. Begich in the Senator.  And get ourselves a new Governor.
