Young & Restless

Alaska Republicans may be in the process of ousting Rep. Don Young. The returns from yesterday’s primary are still coming in, but as of right now, Young trails Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell by a few hundred votes. (Track the returns here.) It’s pretty clear that no matter what happens, Young — Mr. Bridge-to-Nowhere — won’t break 50 percent (there’s a minor third candidate). If he comes back to win, this seat may be in peril. Earlier this year, Gov. Sarah Palin endorsed Parnell. So did NRO.
