Sen. Stevens wins Alaska Republican primary
A federal indictment didn't stop Republican voters in Alaska from supporting Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska) on Tuesday.

Stevens, who faces seven charges of making false statements, won his party's primary with 91 percent of the vote. Two others ran against him.

Stevens will have to campaign while he goes on trial in Washington, D.C., this September. His Democratic opponent is Anchorage Mayor Mark Begich.

Stevens, the former chairman of the Senate Appropriations Committee , is one of the most powerful members of the Senate. He has used his position to help Alaska Native corporations and to pressure Alaska tribes and villages.
