Politics

Young And The Restless

In November, Young was elected to his 20th term in Congress. He's now serving as chairman for the Natural Resources Committee's subcommittee on Alaska Native and Indian Affairs.

Young has faced a tough primary challenge just once before: in 2008, when another Sarah Palin-endorsed candidate, then-Lt. Gov. (now Gov.) Sean Parnell (R) launched a bid against him. Young bested Parnell by just 304 votes. Much like Murkowski, Young has also come under fire recently from conservatives for his heavy use of earmarks, a popular rallying cry among the Tea Party right.
