ClelandUnited States Senator Max Cleland

Alaska needs Diane as the next member of Congress in the House of Representatives. She will bring strong leadership and a perspective to the needs of our Veterans and Soldiers that no other member in Congress can offer. I have watched this family take tragedy in their lives and turn it around. It is Diane and her son’s continued strength to persevere that constantly impresses me. Diane is one courageous woman.
