Below is the original post (written in 2003)…
Alaska’s current Governor is beginning his run for president in 2008. This prognostication would be welcome to be proved wrong, but is based on the following Anchorage Daily News article on G-Murkowski’s ideas for opening ANWR. If he can open it for Bush, perhaps he can be a shoe-in for the GOP nomination. It would certainly put Alaska’s erstwhile (though can you be totally erstwhile when your daughter has your previous job?) Representative’s name out in front of the Outside public.
Which is why he is starting now by suggesting that the Permanent Fund be used to pressure companies that the fund invests in to lobby Congress on behalf of the good people of AK (well, 50.1% of them anyway).
