From Sean Cockerham in Juneau ---
Gov. Sarah Palin just sent the state Senate a letter saying she wants to "eliminate confusion" about what she's trying to do with the open Juneau state Senate seat. The governor said she is forwarding the names of the three candidates in order of her preference -- not as a single batch.
Palin said in her new letter that she is first appointing Tim Grussendorf to the Senate seat and, if the Senate Democrats reject him, she's then appointing Joe Nelson. And if Nelson isn't confirmed, she said she is appointing Alan Wilson.

Latest action in Senate seat
From ADN - Palin submitted three more names to the Democrats - two of which are Grussendorf and Nelson, whom she already appointed and the nine Democrats rejected. We'll watch what happens next. Either way, Juneau missed out on being represented in their State Legislature this year. Thanks, Kim Elton.
