From Sean Cockerham in Anchorage --
The Alaskan Independence Party candidate for U.S. Senate, Bob Bird, said he has the endorsement of Alaska Right to Life.
Bird was president of Alaska Right to Life from 1995 to 1997.
Here's what the Bird campaign has to say about the endorsement:
The Alaska Right to Life endorsement was keenly sought in the 2004 race between Senator Lisa Murkowski and AIP Candidate Jerry Sanders ultimately ending in the group issuing a statement endorsing neither candidate. Alaska Right to Life has over 50,000 supporters across the state and represents a substantial victory for Mr. Bird, a long time Pro-Life advocate instrumental to the formation and success of the Alaska Rescue Project.
