Alaska Election Results Revealed


Alaska is set to announce the results from its ‘confusing’ ranked choice system of elections. Details from Congressional Correspondent Bernie Bennett.

Alaska’s lengthy and convoluted election process is set to come to an end on Wednesday when Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Democrat Rep. Mary Peltola are likely to finally emerge as the winners – largely thanks to the state’s new ranked-choice system.

The Alaska Division of Elections will reveal the final unofficial results on Wednesday night.

Murkowski leads Republican challenger Kelly Tshibaka by less than 1,700 votes – 43.3 percent to 42.7 percent.

In the House contest, Peltola holds a commanding lead, with 48.7 percent support over Republicans Sarah Palin at 25.8 percent and Nick Begich at 23.4 percent.
