'Really?!' Bewildered Sarah Palin implodes after losing congressional race to a Democrat

Verified reader-submitted correction: Tuesday's ranked-choice special election in Alaska was the state's first, not the country's. That milestone occurred in Maine's Second Congressional District in June. A rematch is scheduled for November.

Thank you for the update.

Democrat Mary Peltola was declared the winner of Alaska's first ranked-choice election on Wednesday night and will fill the Last Frontier's lone seat in the United States House of Representatives.

"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," Politico explained. "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 Donald Trump’s endorsement and previously won a statewide campaign in 2006."

Despite having agreed to the rules when she became a candidate on April 1st, Palin bewailed that ranked-choice voting was unfair because she lost.

"When it comes down to second and third-place votes, that's gonna decide who's gonna win? Really?" she bristled. "Alaskans want Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi?"

Peltola, Palin, and Begich will square off again for a full two-year term in the general election on November 8th.
