Congressional candidates to tour ANWR

As high oil and gasoline prices draw attention to domestic oil prospects, seven Republican congressional candidates will come to Alaska this week to tour North Slope oil resources, including the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge,

The candidates are all challenging incumbents from the U.S. House of Representatives, and come from Indiana, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, South Dakota and Utah.

The tour is being arranged by Arctic Power, the lobbying group charged with promoting development of the coastal plain of ANWR, but is being paid for by the seven individual candidates.

From July 14 through July 17, the group will spend two days in Anchorage and two days in the Arctic meeting with Native leaders, oil field workers, political leaders and energy experts.

The trip includes stops in Kaktovik, Prudhoe Bay, Barrow, Deadhorse and the 1002 area, as well as a teleconference with Anchorage Mayor and U.S. Senate candidate Mark Begich and meetings with other Alaska leaders.

The candidates are Jason Chaffetz, running against Bennion Spence in Utah’s 3rd district; Luke Puckett, running against Jow Donnelly in Indiana’s 2nd district; Craig Williams, running against Joe Sestak in Pennsylvania’s 7th district; Paul Stark, running against Ron Kind in Wisconsin’s 3rd district; Mike Sodrel, running against Baron Hill in Indiana’s 9th district; Greg Goode, running against Brad Ellsworth in Indiana’s 8th district and Chris Lien, running against Stephanie Herseth Sandlin for the South Dakota at large seat.
