U.S. Senator, Alaska
Mark Begich was born and raised in Anchorage, where he started his first small business as a teenager. He gets his independent spirit from his parents, including his father, former Alaska Rep. Nick Begich. As a former Mayor and a current member of the U.S. Senate Committee on Appropriations, Mark knows how to work across party lines to get the job done. And he’s fought tirelessly to protect Alaskan jobs, including in the fishing industry as the state’s fisheries are among the largest in the world.
