Young, Cissna make last pitch in House race

The candidates for Alaska’s lone U.S. House seat made one last pitch for the job on Monday, with U.S. Rep. Don Young saying opponent Sharon Cissna can’t do anything that he’s been able to do.

Young touted his seniority during an Anchorage Chamber of Commerce forum, and said he’s already planning to run again in 2014. Young is seeking re-election to a 21st term on Tuesday.

Cissna, a Democratic state representative, billed herself as an alternative to Young.

She talked about making changes to the federal health care law, while Young called for its repeal, and said she doesn’t support opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil and gas development, something Young staunchly supports.
