Here's a political comeback I didn't see coming. I didn't even realize she was running.
Former VP candidate and Alaska governor Sarah Palin has just won her primary election and will run to represent Alaska in the US House of Representatives.
Overshadowed by Liz Cheney's hilarious defeat, Palin is making serious moves on her way back to DC politics.
Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will advance to the November general election for the state's sole seat in the U.S. House, NBC News projects.
Republican Nick Begich and Democrat Mary Sattler Peltola will also appear on the fall ballot, NBC projects. It was too early to call the fourth contender.
A win would mark a political comeback of sorts for Palin, who became a household name when she was tapped to be the vice-presidential running mate in John McCain's failed 2008 White House bid against Barack Obama.
Alaska is experimenting with a ranked-choice voting system, so the final election will feature 4 candidates.
Palin was also competing against both Republican and Democratic candidates to serve the remainder of the term for the seat in Congress that was vacated by the death of GOP Rep. Don Young in March.
The special election was conducted using the new ranked-choice voting system. NBC projects no candidate will win a majority of the votes in the first round. Results in that race are not expected to be fully tabulated until later this month.
Palin, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump, came first in the primary race in June. Like the former president, Palin has worked as a political commentator and a reality-TV figure since she gave up the governorship.
Palin serving in DC would definitely trigger the Left!
