Young Plans to File for Re-election
Alaska's lone U.S. House member is seeking a 22nd term.
ANCHORAGE- Alaska's lone U.S. House member is seeking a 22nd term.
Rep. Don Young plans to file for re-election Tuesday in Anchorage.
The Republican has held the seat since 1973, and represented Alaska in Congress longer than anyone else.
At least two others have already filed: Matt Moore, a Democrat who lost his party's nomination to then-state Rep. Sharon Cissna last year, and Republican John R. Cox, who has unsuccessful run for the office before.
The House Ethics Committee in March said it was forming a special panel to investigate whether Young had failed to report gifts on annual disclosure forms, misused campaign funds and lied to federal officials. Young told reporters at the time the panel is looking at matters he said the FBI had found him "totally innocent of."
