Lula "Lu" Young, wife of U.S. Rep. Don Young, passed away late Saturday. She was 67. Her passing appears to have been a surprise.
During the hundreds of hours I have spent since 2006, campaigning against Rep. Don Young, and researching his political shortcomings and misdeeds, everything I read or learned affirmed that Don and Lu were very close, very much in love. This is quite sad, and must weigh heavily on Young and their two daughters.
Condolences from Progressive Alaska and from me, to Rep. Don Young and his family.
