Here are parts of Begich's 40-minute stint on The Shannyn Moore Show on KBYR. Senator Begich, his wife Deborah and their young son Jacob are currently in the middle of taking three weeks to drive cross-country from Alaska, all the way to Washington D.C. He was in Minnesota when he called in to the show.
On the Public Option
(after Senator Begich lost his phone connection and called back)
Begich: I'm here, can you hear me?
Moore: We're on the radio, so you just wave!
Begich: I'm waving! I'm waving!
Moore: (laughs) I know you're waving... I hope you're raising your hand to support a public option. I just really am.
Begich: I am.
Not exactly the most straightforward way to come out in favor of a public option, but it still seems like Begich has jumped on board none the less.
