            • Early results in Alaska show the Democrat Mary Peltola leading as expected, though not by as much as expected, but there hasn’t been any count from rural districts that are expected to go heavily towards her. Experts seem to be expecting ~45% for her (not bad for someone who had almost zero advertising).

              The surprise is Begich losing to Palin for second place, and not just losing but losing by nearly 5 points. Koch Industries spent a lot of money to not even get 30%. It’s also a big worry for Republicans because if Palin finishes ahead there’s a real worry she won’t get enough transfer votes to beat Peltola.

              Anyway, it’ll be another two weeks as they wait for absentee ballots to arrive and then do the second round to see who wins.

                With the general only being a few months later is the field essentially the same as this special election?

                  From the primary results that certainly looks true, with the addition of a “moderate” Republican in Tara Sweeney as the fourth.

                  • The general assumption right now is Palin will win because Begich’s votes will just transfer to her, which is a good assumption but one I’m kind of skeptical on. I get the whole “Republicans will just pick the other Republican” thing but Palin is deeply unpopular among a good portion of the population here and there’s a good chance a good portion of Begich’s votes either ranked Peltola second or, more likely, left the second choice blank.

                      I saw the perfect tag line for this election:

                      Vote like you may not get another chance.

                        God if only these trends continued and these people show up at the polls.

                        I believe it to be apocryphal (and I could be wrong) but a lot of people claim that various anti-marriage equality bills on ballots in 2004 helped drive voter turnout of republicans and aided in W's re-election. Thinking about that leaves me wondering if putting specific things on November's ballots, especially in purple states, regarding preserving women's access to safe healthcare or enshrining a right to choose in a state consitution is what we really need to drive people to the polls. It's one thing to remind people that they can vote for politicians who believe that women have brains and deserve to control their own bodies and overall not treating them like cattle or property, but maybe we need more than that.

                          From what I’ve read a lot of the outstanding vote is from heavily Dem areas as well. Not sure how many votes it will get since it’s rural areas, but not often the Dem is even in contention.

                          How did a Begich end up as a Republican in Alaska?

                            What, besides overt pessimism, tells you they won't. Its been trending this way for months now and I highly doubt people registered so they can wait in line for the primaries...

                              It won’t be a huge amount but it’ll be enough to push Peltola’s numbers well into the 40s. The other surprise is how well she’s doing in a low turnout election too. Turnout was only around 25% for this election.

                              I don’t really know. If I had to guess he’s probably just an opportunist who saw a path to power.

                              Hilarious that he’s getting beat though, he has spent a lot of his (family) money and a lot of funding from Americans For Prosperity to finish third.
