Debra Chesnut was a 2012 Democratic candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the At-Large Congressional District of Alaska.


Campaign themes


Chesnut's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Affordable Care
Excerpt: "Though an insurance company can no longer deny health coverage for an existing condition under the new Affordable Healthcare Act it still does not address the high cost of insurance for individuals and this does need to be changed."
  • Gas Price Gouging
Excerpt: "Do you thing we can expect a fair deal from our Governor when he is dealing with the oil companies? Can we be sure that he is working for our best interests? Why isn't he lobbying the oil companies to reduce our cost of gas? He certainly has the clout, but instead he consistently takes the side of the oil companies."
  • Health & Services
Excerpt: "I strongly believe that all Alaskans, everywhere deserve the services that are due them. Alaska is a challenging state, but it isn't impossible to do this."
