Don't party too soon. There's work to be done as this is all being replayed come November.

The special election was to replace Rep. Don Young, who died earlier this year at the age of 88. Peltola will complete the term — and become the first Alaska Native in Congress — and then she, Palin and Republican Nick Begich, who finished third in the special election, will face off again in November for the next two-year term.

Hey, they are within sight of Russia. Maybe Palin can have someone bring some votes over by canoe.

A nice surprise with todays result. Still have a November hump to get over, but winning the special, combined with the ire that Palin has earned and the scorched earth between Begich and Palin (and the early years indications of some
national Roe backlash give reason for hope. Tougher fight of Begich drops out.

Noneon 21%.

If that holds accurate in the November election then Peltola should still beat Palin by 2k votes if Begich drops out (assuming the ¿Noneon? votes are split evenly between the two.)

Noneon is a masterful typo for None, as in no second choice marked.

And I assume the Rs will get their @#$%& together to try and take it back. Hopefully Mary can kill enough of the state with kindness and competence to hold on.

only 32% of registered voters turned out, I would expect the number to grow for the general election.
