In this Oct. 30, 2008 file photo, U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska , right, answers a question from Democrat candidate Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich during a congressional debate in Anchorage, Alaska. Stevens, an uncompromising advocate for Alaska for four decades who delivered scores of expensive projects to one of the nation's most sparsely populated states, died in a plane crash on Monday, Aug. 9, 2010 at the age of 86. Family spokesman Mitch Rose says Stevens was among the victims of a crash outside Dillingham, Alaska about 325 miles southwest of Anchorage. (AP Photo/Al Grillo, File)
