Young, Murkowski back Romney; Begich lukewarm


Republican presidential challenger Mitt Romney got two endorsements Wednesday from members of Alaska's congressional delegation.
  Those came from the two Republicans, Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Rep. Don Young.
  Sen. Mark Begich, the delegation's sole Democrat, said he had disappointments with President Obama and his administration during the annual state chamber meeting in Anchorage. But Begich didn't endorse either candidate.
  Murkowski says the last four years haven't been very good for Alaska or the county, and she looks forward to Romney being president. 
  Young also endorsed Romney, and said he's ``very high'' on Romney's vice presidential pick, Paul Ryan.
  Begich says he's been disappointed in Obama's actions when it comes to oil and gas, roadless rules in the Tongass and education policies that don't match the reality of very rural Alaska.
