Now I would like to point out that I had been hearing this rumor for several months, and had ALWAYS dismissed it. That is until West Anchorage Representative Lindsey Holmes suddenly, and without warning, jumped ship.
So that got me thinking that since it seemed that the GOP had Alaska by the short hairs perhaps those rumors about Mark were not so far fetched after all. So I figured it was at the very least something we should be thinking about, and if we saw signs that that was indeed about to happen we could respond accordingly.
Then yesterday I received this in my comments section:
I can assure you Senator Begich is staying a pro- business, pro-development Alaska Democrat. - Susanne Fleek-Green, State Director for Senator Begich
And there you have it.
I have met Susanne and she seems like a very honest individual, so if she says that Begich is sticking with the blue team I take her at her word.
Which is really great news for Alaskans, because right now I am beginning to feel like the last survivor from the recently scuttled good ship "Democrat" bobbing in a sea of Teabagger sharks.
And I don't Goddamn like it!
