Sarah Palin LOST.

The Democrat Mary Peltola has won the special election for Alaska’s only US House seat, becoming the first Alaska Native to serve in the House after beating candidates including the Republican Sarah Palin.

Peltola, 49, who is Yup’ik, is also the first woman to hold the seat and the first from her party to gain the seat in more than half a century. During the campaign, she emphasized her support for such issues as abortion rights. She will serve the remaining months of the late Republican US Representative Don Young’s term until a general election in November.

Palin, the state’s former governor, had the backing of Donald Trump and was hoping to make a political comeback. Along with Peltola and the other Republican candidate, Nick Begich, she will run again for a two-year term in November.

Let’s hope she LOSES again.
