JUST IN: Democrat Rep. Mary Peltola Wins Reelection in Alaska, Defeats Sarah Palin – Election Decided by Ranked-Choice Voting
Democrat Rep. Mary Peltola won reelection to a full term in the House after she defeated Sarah Palin in a special election to replace Rep. Don Young in August.
Peltola was the FIRST DEMOCRAT to win the House seat in solid red Alaska in 50 Years!
Ranked-choice voting and mail-in ballots were implemented by referendum in 2020.
The results of the November 8 election were announced Wednesday night.
U.S. Rep. Mary Peltola has been elected to a full term in the House, months after the Alaska Democrat won a special election to the seat following the death earlier this year of longtime Republican Rep. Don Young.
Peltola defeated Republicans Sarah Palin and Nick Begich and Libertarian Chris Bye in the Nov. 8 election. Results of the ranked choice election were announced Wednesday. Palin and Begich also were candidates in the special election.
RINO of all RINOs Lisa Murkowski also won her race Wednesday evening thanks to ranked-choice voting.
Murkowski won the Alaska Senate race and defeated Trump-backed challenger Kelly Tshibaka.
The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Republicans in Alaska allowed ranked-choice voting to pass in 2020. This confusing system is only being pushed by RINOS and radicals in conservative red states. It allows Democrats to even the playing field when they have no chance of winning.
Republicans also passed mail-in voting.
President Trump won Alaska by 10 points in 2020.
Again — We warned about this back in May! Alaska moved to mail-in voting. And at the same time, they dropped signature verification on ballots.
These new rule changes will ensure the state becomes the next Oregon or California.
Republicans just gave the state away. How tragic.
