In an unprecedented turn of events in an uber red state, Sarah Palin lost the special election in Alaska.
Mary Peltola, a Democrat won the House special election after the passing of Don Young. She is the first Democrat to win a House race in Alaska in 50 years. And as Jacob noted, the first Native Alaskan to win a House seat in history.
This incredible upset comes from a partisan lean according to FiveThirtyEight of R+15.
Chris Hayes' initial reaction tells the story .
"Oh, my gosh a Democrat just won the special congressional election? Beating out Trump's pick Sarah Palin?" Hayes said in shock.
"I just learned that reading that off the teleprompter. Wow! Wow!"
Palin, a Fox News favorite and Trump endorsee has gone down in flames.
I’m sure cries of voter fraud will rain down from the MAGA cult.
It will be interesting to see how Fox News covers her loss. Pretending Republicans split the vote is not going to cut it.
If results like this continues through to November, Republicans are in for a rude awakening.
