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.

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.

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
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.
