Sarah Palin advanced to Alaska's November general election

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will advance to the November general election for the state’s only seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, NBC News projects. Republican Nick Begich and Democrat Mary Sattler Peltola also appear on the fall ballot for NBC projects. It was too early to call the fourth bidder.

Palin also competed against both Republican and Democratic candidates to serve the remainder of the term in Congress that was vacated by the death of GOP Rep. Don Young in March. A win would mark something of a political comeback for Palin, who became famous when she was chosen as the running mate in John McCain’s failed 2008 White House bid against Barack Obama.

Palin, a darling of the defunct right-wing Tea Party movement, abruptly resigned as governor in 2009. Palin also competed against both Republican and Democratic candidates to serve the remainder of the term in Congress that was vacated by the death of GOP Rep. Don Young in March.

NBC projects that no candidate will receive a majority of votes in the first round. The results in this race are not expected to be fully written until later this month. Palin, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, came in first place in the June primaries.  Like the former president, Palin has worked as a political commentator and reality TV personality since resigning as governor.
