In the weird new world of ranked voting in Alaska, both Lisa Murkowski and Kelly Tshibaka both will advance to the general election as well as two others, one of which is yet to be determined.

It also appears, based on these results, that #4 will be a Republican too, assuming that’s how it works. If that’s the case it could further complicate Tshibaka’s quest to defeat Murkowski.
Sarah Palin has also advanced to the general in her House race:
Once again it appears that ranked choice voting in this case could benefit the Democrat, with possibly 3 of the 4 being Republicans.
Alaska, please don’t let America down!
