    The odds of either Palin or Murkowski winning unless one drops out are infinitesimally small. It "could" happen in AK pulling enough dem's and independents but Murkowski is pretty much handing it to the democrat or attempting to.

    I care. They won't have official results for 15 days but Sarah is going to win and take her seat in September. Take it to the bank.

    PS @Mr. Claws I misread "Who does?" as "Who Cares?". Sorry.

    Peltola won 51.47% of the vote for Alaska’s lone House seat, over Palin’s 48.53%, sending Peltola to serve out the remainder of longtime Republican Rep. Don Young’s term following his death in March.


    The Associated Press called the election for Peltola shortly after Alaska officials released the results.


    Palin and Peltola, as well as Republican Nick Begich III, will all be on the ballot in the general election in November to determine who is elected to the two-year House term—the three candidates advanced in the primary election earlier this month to earn a spot on the ballot in the general election.


    The final vote tally was released 15 days after the special election because none of the candidates received an outright majority in the state’s ranked-choice voting system (the final vote includes the second choices from ballots that picked candidates with the fewest votes in the August 16 election, and adds them to the vote count for the top two candidates).

    Murkowshit cost the GOP a House seat. She was the one who pushed for ranked choice voting because it was the only way she could have held onto her seat.

    I've seen Dr. Oz get attacked A LOT by Republicans. I wish they had the same energy for Murkowshit. I'd still vote for Dr. Oz in the general election, but not Murkowshit.

    If you live in Alaska, vote for Kelly Tshibaka, and don't rank Lisa Murkowshit. It would only make sense to rank Murkowshit second if she was better than a Democrat. But she's not better than a Democrat. She votes with Biden 67% of the time. She thinks trannies should compete with women in sports. Not even Joe Manchin, a Democrat, believes that. She wants to destroy America. Same as a Democrat, except she's a cancer on the Republican party as well. No more of Murky doing backroom deals with Democrats and voting like Alaska is a shaky swing state.

    For the House, I'd say vote for Palin only and keep Begich unranked in November as well. Begich is from a Democratic family (Democrats are the enemy of the people, and being close to Democrats means he might think it's okay to get steamrolled by them once in office) and isn't a team player. He's attacked Palin more than Peltola. And Begich voters have to vote for Palin and not the other way around, because Palin was closer to defeating Peltola. Begich's statement after the election showed he's a crybaby. There's nothing really wrong with Palin. She will fight Biden. Period. And if you don't get the seat in 2022, you can get it in 2024 with a real Republican instead of Begich.
