    We'll see who the Republicans can come up with, but there are few states less friendly to Democrats than Alaska. Begich barely beat Stevens at a point in which Stevens was practically swimming in blood money.

    This is a state that's proven it will elect moderate-ish Republicans, but outside of 2008, it hasn't elected a Democrat to the House or the Senate since Mike Gravel in the 70s.

    The map will look much better in 2014 than 2012, but people are kidding themselves if they think Alaska isn't a huge target for the Republicans.
