In the special election, Peltola had one of the more memorable, and effective, slogans we’ve seen this cycle: “Fish, Family, & Freedom.” She has spent much of her career working on issues related to fisheries, an important facet of the state’s economy, and emphasized her support for abortion rights — Alaska is generally considered one of the more socially libertarian states. In one of her recent ads, she cited Young, who traveled across the state to meet with constituents of all political parties, as a role model. On Capitol Hill, Peltola is taking after Young in another way: she is becoming an active legislator — after less than a month in office, one of her bills, which is aimed at supporting Alaska veterans, passed the House. She has also retained some of Young’s staff.
