Stevens To Hold Homecoming Rally Wednesday Night

Ted Stevens’ campaign will hold a homecoming rally Wednesday night, as Stevens returns to Alaska following his conviction on seven felony counts in a Washington, D.C. court.

Stevens is locked in a tight reelection battle with Democrat Mark Begich. Following the verdict, Stevens maintained his innocence and said he would not drop out of the race.

The rally will be held at 5:30 p.m. local time in a hanger located on the grounds of the Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport.
