When candidates rail about a “tough” elections, an image comes to mind.

It’s an image of Iraqi citizens campaigning for elective office – not afraid of an someone misrepresenting their position on TV, or a political smear piece in the mailbox, but afraid instead of he or his family being assassinated - because he had the audacity to stand for election.

It’s also the image of Iraqi citizens with ink on their finger who went to the polls to cast ballots for better government - despite death threats from terrorists

Folks, those are tough elections. We don’t have anything close to tough elections in Alaska, or in the United States of America. So go forth and vote, and let common sense and conscience be your guide!
