44. Alaska has several state Republican politicians who are as you describe,

people you can respect and who will listen to reason. We have some Republicans in our legislature who actually stand up to the oil companies and big resource extractors, who believe in science, who approve of expanding health insurance coverage and other social programs. Even Lisa Murkowski sometimes gets it right, as she did last week when she was one of the few Republicans to cross over on the veterans bill. And she did beat that asshat Miller.

There should be more Republicans like that. It's okay to have different policy approaches to society's problems, but compromise and a willingness to work together for the good of the citizenry is absolutely essential.
