It isn't the first time an Alaska senator has chastised a colleague for a lack of understanding about his non-contiguous state.  

Sen. Mark Begich lit into fellow Democratic Sen. Claire McCaskill of Missouri after she sent a letter to the Small Business Administration administrator seeking details about the use of a small and disadvantaged business contracting program by Alaska Native Corporations.
