Democrat Mary Peltola won the special election to fill Alaska's House seat for the remainder of 2022, according to unofficial results released by the Alaska Division of Elections, thwarting former Gov. Sarah Palin's bid at a political comeback -- at least for a few months. Peltola emerged as the victor Wednesday when Alaska's Division of Elections tabulated ranked-choice ballots in the state's first use of the system.

Let me count the votes. It’s Alaska. How many can there be?
Shows you who they’re afraid of and want to keep down.
Rigged Election System in Alaska.
Can we give it back to Russia, where their elections are fairer?
“ranked-choice ballots” == “Republicans will never be allowed to win again”
She should move to a better state.
“Ranked Choice”= Rat Party Fraud...Guaranteed
NO NUMBERS ????
So people who voted for Begich chose the Dem as their second choice? Unbelievable!!
Beat me by 29 seconds!
Because that’s exactly what happened.
The poll that nailed the final result on the money showed that head to head, Begich wins in a walk, by about 10 points.
The problem was that the moron class was chasing celebrity and Grifter Pundit memes instead of listening to people with more political knowledge.
60% of the initial vote went to Republicans. That was a 7 points better than Trump’s victory in 2020. Yet we lose, because too many morons pushed Palin into the Second spot.
So that headline is absolutely accurate.
Palin lost this, Pelota didn’t win.
The “they” in this case apparently being the voters.
Not all of them, but enough of them did because they couldn’t stand Palin.
If she weren’t in the race, Begich would have won in a landslide.
Palin needs to drop out.
Suuuure she did 🙄
Gay State Conservative nailed it!
Ranked choice voting is an abomination; a way for the nefarious miscreants counting the votes to achieve the outcome they desire. There is NOTHING fair about it.
Begich’s 2nd choice votes went to the Democrat. What a shock when his grandfather (Democrat Nick Begich) held the seat before Don Young and his uncle was Democrat US Senator Mark Begich.
Yep, but you’ll never convince the Qtard, conspiracy crowd.
They’ll listen to Uncle Billy Bob on their Facebook page instead of listening to people who actually know better.
Ranked choice = cheating again
So....who will be the Republican standard bearer in November?
Peltola has to run again in November, no?
