    Former Republican Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has advanced to the general election in the state's sole House race, multiple outlets have projected.

    Republican Nick Begich and another candidate will also advance along with Democrat Mary Peltola to make the state's ranked-choice ballot.

    "As we wrap up the first phase of a wild and crazy election season, I would like to thank these wonderful supporters for placing their trust in me to be a fierce and unapologetic advocate for the interests of all Alaskans! I promise I won't let you down," Palin shared in a statement early Wednesday morning.

    "I will be honored to fight for Alaska against the ever-growing corruption in Washington, D.C. I'm especially grateful to everyone who volunteered to help campaign - you guys are the happy warriors who make campaigning fun, and it's an honor working with you. I know you'll have the stamina to stick with me on the campaign trail through November," she added.

    The House race and special election were placed side by side on Tuesday's Alaska ballot as part of a special election to replace the remainder of Rep. Don Young's (R-AK) term. Young died in March at the age of 88.

    As The Daily Wire previously reported, Young had served in Congress since 1973, making him the longest-serving member of the House.

    The special election ballot followed a June special election primary that saw 48 contenders for the state's only House seat. Palin's battle to return to politics following a 13-year gap led to her becoming one of the final Republicans along with one Democrat to face off in Tuesday's ranked-choice vote.

    The winner of the ranked-choice special election is not yet known. Results may not be completed until as late as August 31.

    The ranked-choice system is a first for the state. Alaska's voters approved the new method by a ballot measure in 2020.

    In addition to Palin advancing, both Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski and GOP challenger Kelly Tshibaka are projected to advance to the November ballot. The two leaders are among the top four that will advance among the race's 18 primary candidates.

    Murkowski faces a strong challenge to keep her seat after voting to impeach former President Donald Trump in 2021. Trump has endorsed Tshibaka, appearing with her in a July rally.

    In the state's gubernatorial race, Republican Governor Mike Dunleavy is projected to easily advance as well. Also projected to advance to the November ballot are former Independent Governor Bill Walker and Democrat Les Gara.

    Tuesday also saw the fall of Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) in Wyoming's primary. Cheney lost by a wide margin to Harriet Hageman, who was endorsed by former President Donald Trump.

    With more than 95% of the votes counted, Hageman held over 66% of the vote while Cheney was only at 28.9%.

Inarguably, the policies of the Democrats in congress and Joe Biden as the Executive is plunging the United States into a recession, if we are not already there; a recession that was completely avoidable. Will abrupt changes in policies occur in time?
  Yes, the Democrats have a bold plan, yet to be revealed, to save us.
  No, there will have to be a complete undoing of the damage done by these Democrats.
  I can't do simple math, so how am I to understand the concept of basic economics.
