Senators Lisa Murkowski and Joe Manchin sit together on stage at Anchorage's Dena'ina Civic and Convention Center at an April 8 banquest during the Arctic Encounter Symposium. Manchin, a West Virginia Democrat who attended the event with Murkowski, repeatedly praised the Alaska Republican and called for federal policies to boost fossil-fuel production. He said he supports Murkowski's push for oil development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He has campaigned across party lines for Murkowski's reelection.
