Democrat Mary Peltola Defeats Palin In Special Alaska House Race. She’ll have to run again in November against the same candidates to hold onto the seat” – is that because this was a special election to replace a deceased member? If Palin’s ego allows, she could withdraw to support a red recovery. Or this result might motivate even more blue voters to go to the polls in November. Maybe both.
It is very good news , Democrat Mary Peltola tops Sarah Palin to win U.S. House special election in Alaska
Yay! Been to Alaska. While I’m sorry not to see Tina Fey on SNL. Mary you’re saving it from Palin. Congratulations Mary Peltola, you will be great serving. For a few months. The real votes will come in November and we shall see if she will serve for 2 years. What for the next 80days then the whole state midterm? It’s still up hill battle in November for Mary Peltola.
Alaskans didn’t want to take a chance with a representative with a history of quitting in the middle of their term. Suprisingly people have forgotten about that. Alaskans didn’t want to take a chance with a representative with a history of quitting in the middle of their term.
As a girl born in Alaska, I’m so excited to see this change in the state. It is so wonderful that Alaska will be represented by an Alaska Native. I’m not getting my hopes up yet, she has to fight to keep the seat in November anyway still.
This is beyond awesome! A native and a woman flipped a seat that’s been Republican owned for 50 years! Congratulations, hopefully the people of Alaska come out again in November. As an old white guy, I hope to never see another old white guy get elected. We had our time.
Alaskans know Palin and they have rejected her. I believe we will see a lot more of this because it’s painfully obvious what the majority of Americans want. They don’t want radicals anywhere near Washington DC.
