Representative Spirit

Lynn Gattis is a representative running for Alaska Senate and lost the race to a new incumbent. She decided to continue to run anyway as a "write in." These fireworks are coming from her land (she lives across the lake from us). These fireworks are powerful. Americanso love the underdog story and the fighting spirit behind it.
