I was trying to figure out which gubernatorial candidate Ketchikan voted for in 2006. Turns out I found this statement and it mentions Palins popularity as well as who SE voted for.

Thursday, May 31, 2007

By region, she's strongest in the MatSu-Kenai-Valdez belt and in rural Alaska, but even 83.3% of the Southeast, which gave its heart to Tony Knowles in the November 2006 general election, approve of her performance.
from this site:

SE voted for Tony Knowles even though Sarah Palin promoted building the bridge.

Politicians all over the country find the region they were not supported in and that area tends to receive a little less benefits. She took the non earmarked money that Ketchikan wanted for the bridge, looked over the cost for the amount of people who would use it, and then made that decision the money could be used better somewhere else.

Had SE voted for her, chances are they might have had a better chance to get that bridge. Politics are politics, some people win, some lose.
