Senate challenger will seek pardon for Stevens

SITKA, ALASKA A challenger in the race for the US Senate will ask the president to pardon incumbent Ted Stevens.
David Haase, the Libertarian candidate for senator from Alaska, says he would write President Bush “not for me, but for all Alaskans.”
Haase extended this offer – and discussed some other campaign issues – in a call to KCAW in Sitka shortly after Stevens received his guilty verdict on October 27, 2008.
