Five Things to Know About Today's Primary
Tuesday, 19 August 2014

BECKY BOHRER, Associated Press
JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — Today's primary will decide the hard-fought, first-round battle for U.S. Senate in Alaska and whether to reinstate an oil tax system that was a legacy of Sarah Palin's short tenure as governor.
    Here are five more things to know about the primary:

—BIG MONEY: Alaska's U.S. Senate race is the first major race in the state during the era of super PACs and it comes with high stakes: Republicans see the state as key to their efforts to wrest back control of the chamber. The seat is currently held by a first-term Democratic incumbent, Mark Begich, who is putting up a hard fight.
    In the lead-up to the primary, a super PAC backing Begich spent about $4 million against the presumptive GOP front-runner, former state Attorney General Dan Sullivan. About $1.2 million has been spent against Begich, according to the web-based Influence Tracker, with millions more waiting in the wings heading toward the general election.

—SENATE SLATE: Begich's only primary opposition is from a Brooklyn, New York, man who has been a non-factor. The Republican contest is considered a three-man race between Sullivan, Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and Joe Miller. The Libertarian and Alaskan Independence parties are fielding candidates, as well. Begich wants all the eventual nominees included in debates he participates in.

—OIL TAX REPEAL: Ballot Measure 1 asks voters whether they want to repeal the oil tax cuts passed by lawmakers in 2013 and revert to the system enacted under Palin in 2007. A "yes" vote favors repeal. According to the Division of Elections, only three referenda have ever appeared on a statewide ballot, two of which passed, one in 2000, one in 1976.

—OTHER RACES: The ballot also features U.S. House and gubernatorial primaries, though no upsets are expected. The attention in both those has largely been focused on the general.

—PRIMARY TURNOUT: Division of Elections Director Gail Fenumiai isn't estimating possible voter turnout, just saying she hopes it's "high." Turnout in 2010, which also featured competitive U.S. Senate and gubernatorial races, was about 34 percent. Since 1976, turnout has topped 50 percent just three times.

           Each summer, a handful of local youth join forces with the Kodiak National Wildlife Refuge as members of the Youth Conservation Corps or YCC. Kodiak High School alumna Leila Pyle worked as a crew member in the past, but this year she took on a larger role as the crew’s leader. Pyle said YCC is actually a nationwide program that employs high school age students on public land all over the country.
            Here in Kodiak, four high school students make up the team, in addition to a college-age crew leader. Pyle, who is entering her sophomore year at Reed College in Oregon, said the crew works in town and at various remote locations throughout the refuge over the the summer.
            This year the crew had the opportunity to travel to Tugidak Island and participate in Kodiak Island Trails Network’s marine debris clean up.

           Alaska State Troopers and the Kodiak Police Department are asking for the public’s help in finding two men who impersonated law enforcement over the weekend.
           Megan Peters is a spokesperson for the troopers and said gun shots were reportedly heard at Mill Bay beach just before Midnight on Saturday. Upon arrival and further investigation, Peters said troopers learned that two males dressed in black and wearing ski masks approached a 17-year-old juvenile near the beach.
            “The subjects claimed that they were police officers and demanded that the minor identify himself. When the minor questioned their validity as law enforcement officers one of the subjects brandished a pistol and fired the weapon.”  
             Peters said the minor was not injured and the suspects fled the scene. The incident is still under investigation and anyone with information should contact the troopers or police department immediately.
              “We always do encourage the public to come forward with any kind of information that they have regarding any crime. We really do rely on tips we get from the public in certain cases and this case we really feel like it would be exceedingly helpful if somebody did call us and were able to tell us some information.”
              The Alaska State Troopers can be contacted by calling 486-4121, or folks can anonymously contact Crime Stoppers at 486-3113.

Young Says He Still Has Clout in Congress

    At the age of 81, Alaska Congressman Don Young, is seeking a 22nd term in the United States House of Representatives and spent a number of days on Kodiak Island last week on a campaign swing.
    Currently in his 42nd year of service, Young was first sent to Washington after winning a special election after his general election opponent disappeared on a plane flight.
    “You know it’s an amazing thing. It just seems like yesterdaythat  I was running in a special election against... well, actually the election against Nick Begich. October the 16th he went out and had an airplane wreck and we never did find him. And he beat me. And then of course I got elected to a special .. well, not of course – it was a close race ... in the special election in March 7th of 73. And then got sworn into office March 14th and I’ve been there ever since.”
    Nick Begich is the father of current U.S. Senator Mark Begich, who is seeking re-election this year:
    “Oh I think Mark has done a good job. I think some of his votes were wrong. But again I’ve known him since he was 10 years old and watched his growth. Everybody has to make up his own decision how they’d vote and not vote.”
    Though he is the longest-serving Republican in Congress, his critics say that several controversies have limited his effectiveness despite his tenure. Young says that seniority is still a rare and valuable thing.
    “Of course my opponent says it doesn’t, but it does. It’s not just about committee chairmanships. I’ll be the first one to tell you the chances of my getting another chairmanship out of a full committee is very unlikely. But it is ... I have communications with both sides of the aisle, of a lot of existing chairmen, a lot of former chairmen. And I have a network that nobody else can get. It takes time. And this is the way the political system works. Everybody, not everybody, they run against me, they say, ‘well he doesn’t have any clout any more.’ Well they don’t have any clout period.”
    Young said he would step aside and endorse a like-minded young candidate if they would commit to staying in the U.S. House for 25-years, which is how long he says it takes to build up the kind of clout it takes to be effective.
    Young faces three Republican challengers in the primary: John Cox, David Dohner and David Seaward. The winner will take on the victor of the Democratic primary, which is being contested by perennial candidate Frank Vondersaar and frontrunner Forrest Dunbar.
