ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — The airport that bears the name of former U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens now has a statue of the Alaska Republican.
A 631-pound (286-kilogram) bronze statue was unveiled Saturday at Ted Stevens Anchorage International Airport. It shows Stevens, who served in the Senate for 40 years, with a welcoming disposition, seated on a bench.
The Ted Stevens Foundation oversaw the privately funded project. Executive director Karina Waller hopes the statue’s high-traffic location will capture attention and educate people about Stevens, the Anchorage Daily News reported .
