Alaska rejected Sarah Palin again as Rep. Mary Pertola defeated the former governor for the second time.
CNN reported, Alaska Rep. Mary Pertola, the Democrat who won a special election this summer and sent her to Congress, will again frustrate former Gov. Sarah Palin’s political comeback. CNN predicted Wednesday that Pertola would win Alaska’s general House seat after Alaska’s ranked-choice vote was tabulated, defeating Palin and Republican Nick Begich III.
Palin can now return to Arizona, or wherever she recently lived, and stop pretending to live in Alaska. The moment surpassed Sarah Palin sometime around 2012, but she’s been kicking around the political D-list for the past decade, constantly threatening to run for office. In 2022, Palin, who has seen her reputation drop to a new low, makes a comeback and participates in the special election for the Alaska House of Representatives. The result was two losses to Rep. Peltola.
DCCC Chairman Sean Patrick Maloney congratulated Pertola in a statement provided to PoliticusUSA, “Congresswoman Mary Peltola once again made history, And re-elected to represent Alaska. Alaska’s great residents are hungry for more proven leadership from Congresswoman Pertola on the issues that matter most — from fish to family to freedom. Huge congratulations to her for her second win this year . Alaskans deserve continued representation in Washington by Congresswoman Pertola.”
Mary Peltola’s Promising and Historic Political Career It’s only just begun, but for Sarah Palin, failure looks like the end of politics as she goes from failed governor to failed vice presidential candidate, failed reality TV star to failed candidates for the House of Representatives.
Our long-running nationwide Sarah Palin nightmare may finally be over.
