Election Night Statement From Congressman Young
November 6, 2012
Anchorage, Alaska – Congressman for all Alaska Don Young released the following statement regarding tonight’s election results in advance of certification by the Alaska Division of Elections:
"The level of support shown by Alaskans tonight is incredibly humbling and I thank you for your support. This was a spirited campaign focused on the issues facing Alaska and the nation – and for that, I thank Representative Cissna and her campaign.
"As Alaskans know, I am someone who fights day in and day out for all Alaskans. I am happy to see that Republicans have maintained a majority in the House of Representatives, but at the end of the day, I will work with my colleagues – both Democrat and Republican – to solve the problems facing this nation. Congress has a full plate of issues when we return – and I plan on continuing to fight to reduce the regulatory burden on Alaskans, develop an “all of the above” energy plan and work to avoid the fiscal cliff this nation is facing.
“Again, I thank the people of Alaska for their continued support.”
