All Three Major Incumbents Win Re-election In Alaska 

After ranked choice instant runoff votes were counted for the U.S. Senate, starting at 4 pm on Wednesday, November 23rd – the day before Thanksgiving – Lisa Murkowski had 53.7% of the votes and Kelly Tshibaka had 46.3%. 

As expected, the race tipped toward Murkowski. More than two thirds of the Democratic Senatorial candidate, Patricia Chesbro's, votes went to Murkowski as the voters' second choice. 

Mary Peltola has become the first Alaska Native and the first Alaska woman elected to Alaska's single Congressional seat. She previously won a temporary term in August, created by the passing of Representative Don Young, who died in March. 

Peltola was carried to victory by the second choice votes for Republican Nick Begich, who was supported by the Alaskan Republican Party.  Peltola retained her seat with 55% of the votes. Former governor Sarah Palin garnered 45% of the votes. 

Of Begich's voters, 2/3rds ranked Palin second. 

Governor Mike Dunleavy was all but reassured of re-election. He had already won over 50% of first choice votes. His re-election is now official. 

The Country Journal will update this story when possible, but it appears intense national interest has crashed the state's Division of Elections website.
