Alaska Sens. Murkowski, Begich vote with majority on 'don't ask, don't tell'

Both of Alaska's senators on Saturday voted to repeal the military's ban on openly gay troops. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a Republican, and Sen. Mark Begich, a Democrat, first voted Saturday morning to end a filibuster, which paved the way for an afternoon vote on the repeal. It passed 65-31. Murkowski joined seven other Republicans in supporting the repeal.
