    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) said on Tuesday that she thinks Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) should “stay governor” for the time being, as he continues to attract speculation about a potential 2024 presidential bid. “DeSantis doesn’t need to [run],” Palin said in an interview with Newsmax. “I envision him as our president someday but not right now. “He should stay governor for a bit longer,” she added. “He’s young, you know. He has decades ahead of him where he can be our president.” Although DeSantis has yet to announce a 2024 presidential bid, he is widely viewed as...
  • Sarah Palin's Future Uncertain After Losing House Race

    Since Election Day, Sarah has tweeted her displeasure with ranked-choice voting, which Alaska used both this summer in the special election and on Election Day. Last week, she signed a petition by an anti-ranked choice voting political action committee called Alaskans for Honest Government.

    Democrat Mary Peltola has won the race for Alaska’s at-large congressional seat, NBC News projected Wednesday, defeating former governor and GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. While the election was held earlier this month, the race was not called for weeks because of Alaska’s new ranked-choice voting system where voters rank the candidates in order of preference. After the first round of voting, Peltola led Palin by more than 20 percentage points, with Republican Nick Begich, a scion of one of Alaska’s most well-known political families, in third. But because Peltola failed to win more than 50 percent, the voting...
  • Thanks to Insane Ranked-Choice Voting, Sarah Palin Has Election Taken from Her Again

    Thanks to the GOP voting in ranked-choice voting, Sarah Palin has election taken from her again. Sarah Palin deserves a special medal of honor for her attempts to make America a great country. The former governor of Alaska offered to help the helpless John McCain in his run for President and she was hammered by the media like no politician up to that point in history. After helping McCain increase his popularity with the public, McCain threw her under the bus when he lost. This past year, Palin ran for office again, this time for US Rep from Alaska. She...
  • Republican Lisa Murkowski Pledges to Vote for Alaska House Democrat over Sarah Palin

    10/23/2022 10:57:41 AM PDT · by rktman · 54 replies ^ | 10/22/2022 | Wendell Husabo
    Twenty-one-year incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) has said she will vote for Democrat House candidate Rep. Mary Peltola (D-AK) over Republican challenger former Gov. Sarah Palin. “Yeah, I am,” Murkowski responded Friday when asked by the Anchorage Daily News if she would vote for the Democrat. Alaska uses the ranked choice voting system, which ultimately affords Democrat voters the opportunity to vote for Murkowski on the second and third ballots. Murkowski’s decision to vote for a Democrat is likely intended to attract more votes down-ballot to ultimately defeat Trump-endorsed Senate Republican candidate Kelly Tshibaka, who is leading in the polls...
  • Sarah Palin: ‘My First Agenda Item Will Be Making Sure We Open Up ANWR’ to End ‘Fake Energy Crisis’

    Former Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK), a candidate running to represent Alaska’s At-Large Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives, said in an interview on Breitbart News editor Adrienne Ross’s eponymous podcast published on Tuesday that if elected, her policy priority will be to “open up” the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) as a measure against a “fake energy crisis” that President “Biden made.” Palin called for increasing energy and natural resource development in ANWR while highlighting the synthetic nature of rising energy costs driven by government policies marketed by the Biden administration as “environmental” measures.
  • Alaska’s Ranked-Choice Voting Scheme Was A Plot To Save Murkowski, But It Also Doomed Palin

    The Federalist. ^ | SEPTEMBER 09, 2022 | Tristan Justice
    In order to avoid a Republican primary, Murkowski operatives orchestrated a takeover of state election laws. Election officials called Alaska’s special election House race for Democrat Mary Peltola over 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin last week. Peltola’s victory, despite nearly 60 percent of votes cast for a Republican on all first-choice ballots, will mark the first time since 1973 that a Democrat will represent the state in the lower chamber. Whether the August contest was Palin’s race or Republican Nick Begich’s race to lose is an open question. Whether the Republicans’ loss was a consequence of Alaska’s new...

    WND ^ | 9/6/22
    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, who is running for the state’s at-large congressional district in November, has pleaded with her Republican challenger to drop his bid to avoid splitting the state’s GOP votes. Nick Begich III, a businessman and member of the politically prominent Begich family, was a GOP candidate alongside Palin in the Aug. 16 special election to fill the House seat, which became vacant after longtime Republican Rep. Don Young died in office in March. State law required that a special election for the seat be held within five months of an intra-term vacancy, even as the 2022...

    Well, the left has got one. On Twitter and beyond, you've never heard such crowing.According to Politico:Democrat Mary Peltola has defeated Republican Sarah Palin in the special election for Alaska's vacant House seat, a big upset over the former governor in the state's first election under ranked-choice voting.Peltola, a former state legislator who will become Alaska's first indigenous member of Congress, defeated a special election field that included Palin and another Republican, Nick Begich III. The Democrat finished first in the initial tally and then won enough second-choice votes from Begich's supporters to see off Palin, who had former President...

    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.

    Democratic candidate Mary Peltola left election day leading Alaska's special election for U.S. House, but the state's new ranked choice voting system may leave Republican candidate and former governor Sarah Palin the ultimate winner. As of Wednesday afternoon, with 395 of 402 precincts reporting, Peltola had earned 38.03% of first-choice vote in a race that will determine who fills Alaska's lone U.S. House seat until January, completing the term left unfinished by the death of Congressman Don Young earlier this year. Trailing Peltola, with 31.93% of first-choice votes, was Palin. Republican candidate Nick Begich III was in third with 28.56%...

    Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) was projected to advance from her primary in the race for Alaska’s at-large congressional district. The Associated Press called the race at 1:42 a.m. ET. Republican Nick Begich and Democrat Mary Peltola were also projected to advance. Palin was among a large group of primary candidates vying for Alaska’s lone House seat, and she only needed to be among one of the top four vote-getters in the state’s new open primary system in order to advance to the general election. Palin was a part of the 2008 Republican presidential ticket, running as the vice...

    WASHINGTON (AP) — Elections in Wyoming and Alaska on Tuesday could relaunch the political career of a former Republican star and effectively end the career of another — at least for now. Wyoming Rep. Liz Cheney is the vice chair of a U.S. House committee seeking to expose the truth behind former President Donald Trump’s relentless efforts to stay in power after losing the 2020 election, and his role in fomenting the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Cheney’s determination to prevent Trump from ever again serving in the White House has left her fighting to hold on to...

    A news article from 1996, before Sarah Palin was in politics, quotes her as an Ivana Trump fan. Palin had lined up to meet Trump, who was in Alaska promoting her perfume line. Palin recounted the experience on Thursday after news broke of Ivana Trump's death. Long before she became a staunch supporter of former President Donald Trump, Sarah Palin was a big fan of his ex-wife. In 1996, Palin was just one of many Alaskans who lined up to meet Ivana Trump, the former Czechoslovakian Olympic skier and businesswoman, according to an article published in the Anchorage Daily News...

    While Democrat activists have been busy trying to figure out a way to tie up tickets for the Trump Save America rally on July 9 at the University of Alaska Anchorage’s Alaska Airlines Center, it’s not working. On Twitter, Trump detractors have been sharing ideas for how to reserve tickets they don’t plan to use. The effort has fallen flat, because the free tickets to the Trump rally do not actually reserve a seat — they are first-come, first-served. The line for the July 9 rally opens at 6 am. The free ticket signup is mainly to help organizers of...
