Ohio Republican lawmakers are upset with President Obama's plan to formally rename Alaska's Mt. McKinley, to "Denali" during his trip to Alaska this week. Denali is the Native American name for the peak. Alaska has a longstanding petition to rename the mountain to Denali. It's been called Mt McKinley after the nation's 25th President for over 100 years. Ohio Congressman Bob Gibbs calls the move a political stunt that is insulting to all Ohioans. McKinley never visited Alaska.
