Murkowski wants to build new roads into the bush and open resources to development. Amazing how little resonance this issue has. People I work with are proud they will vote for Ulmer.

Out of 200, there might be 20 who vote R with any regularity.
The simple fact is that oil accounts for far more than half of Alaska's gross product, and without future oil development Alaska's economy will sicken, forcing more and more Alaskans back onto the federal welfare dole.
