Sen. Begich Comments on Massachusetts Senate Race
U.S. Senator Mark Begich issued the following statement welcoming Massachusetts special election victor Scott Brown to the United States Senate:
"I congratulate Scott Brown on his victory in Tuesday's special election for Massachusetts' Senate seat. Senator-elect Brown assembled an impressive coalition of supporters from both political parties and independent voters, much like I did in my own Senate race.
"I look forward to working with Senator-elect Brown and introducing him to issues that are important to Alaska. Our states share common ground on matters that affect our military and America's coasts and we must work across party lines to address them.
"I also thank Senator Paul Kirk for his service to the state of Massachusetts. While his time in the Senate has not yet concluded, he deserves praise for excellent service to the people of Massachusetts."
