Americans For Prosperity Action- Alaska Endorses Nick Begich For U.S. House Of Representatives

Begich will lead and take a firm stand on issues important to Alaska

Americans for Prosperity Action Alaska (AFP Action-AK) today endorsed Nick Begich for election to Alaska’s at-large seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

“The field for Alaska’s lone congressional seat now boasts 48 names, but long before fighting for Alaska looked easy, Nick Begich had the courage to stand up and call out Washington D.C. for their failed policies,” said AFP Action-AK Senior Advisor Bernadette Wilson. “Nick understands that even when it’s not popular, or when it looks too difficult, we must fight the damaging effects of an irresponsible Congress. This courage and conviction will guide Nick as a champion for economic growth and opportunity.”

AFP Action-AK will leverage its grassroots activists to educate voters and encourage support for Begich ahead of the special and general elections.

AFP Action is a 527 political action committee focused on electing candidates who will drive policy change and facilitate the building of broad policy coalitions that remove barriers to opportunity and help people improve their lives.

“In some areas of Alaska fuel is nearly $6 a gallon,” said Wilson. “Spring barges coming into Alaska will see a 50 percent increase in cost compared to June of last year. Nationally, Americans will spend $5,200 just to cover the same day-to-day expenses as last year.

“As a resource-rich state, Alaska can lead the country with solutions that will fuel innovation and provide financial security,” she said. “There is no doubt Nick Begich has what it will take to lead the way and be a champion for Alaska.”

Background

Nick Begich knows that massive deficits and a soaring debt threaten the well-being of future generations and our nation’s security by limiting our ability to prepare for current and emerging threats. He understands that the role of federal lawmakers is to establish priorities and make the tough decisions to cut waste and unnecessary spending. And he will work to ensure our nation responsibly develops its energy resources to provide abundant and affordable energy.
