Lisa Murkowski wins

Two Alaska moderates, GOP Sen. Lisa Murkowski and Democratic Rep. Mary Peltola, won reelection Wednesday over two challengers backed by former President Donald Trump, thanks to the state’s ranked-choice-voting system, which allowed them to prevail without winning a majority of the vote.

Murkowski repelled Trump-backed Republican Kelly Tshibaka, less than two years after Murkowski voted for conviction in Trump’s impeachment trial.

Peltola, meanwhile, beat former Gov. Sarah Palin, another Trump-endorsed candidate, by a wider margin than her victory in the Aug. 19 special election that first sent Peltola to Congress.

The Nov. 8 races were the first general elections held under Alaska’s new ranked-choice-voting scheme. Murkowski beat fellow Republican Kelly Tshibaka, 53.7 percent to 46.3 percent, after the second-choice votes from supporters of the third- and fourth-place candidates were reallocated in Wednesday’s tabulation.
