8:03 AM, Sep 12, 2013 • By MICHAEL WARREN
Alaska's lieutenant governor Mead Treadwell, a Republican, has officially entered the U.S. Senate race in 2014 to challenge incumbent Democrat Mark Begich. The Associated Press reports:
Begich, the former mayor of Anchorage, was elected to the Senate in 2008, defeating the long-serving, scandal-ridden Republican Ted Stevens, who was found guilty of corruption just days after losing reelection. The son of former congressman Nick Begich, he became the first Democrat to represent Alaska in either house of Congress since Mike Gravel lost reelection in 1980.
