“Results of Yesterday’s Primary Elections in Alaska and Wyoming”
From Donna Garner


Looking back: Ten House Republicans voted to impeach Pres. Trump. Four of them decided not to seek re-election to Congress. Of the six remaining, four have been defeated in GOP primaries. Only two have advanced to the Nov. 8, 2022 elections (U. S. Rep. Dan Newhouse (R-WA) and David Valadao (R-CA).


In Alaska, a new election process was used in which the top four winners (of either party) in the primary get to go into the Nov. 8 general elections.

Repub Sarah Palin (along with three others) will advance to the Nov. 8 elections for the U. S. House. Palin was endorsed by Trump.

Repub Kelly Tshibaka (endorsed by Trump) and U. S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski (along with two others – too early to call) will advance to the Nov. 8 general elections. Murkowski voted to convict Trump in his second impeachment trial; Trump was acquitted. The Murkowski family “political machine” has controlled Alaska since 1981.

Kudos to the Alaskan voters for breaking the Murkowski family control.

On the same ballot in Alaska yesterday, there was also a special election to choose someone to serve the remainder of the late-U. S. Rep. Don Young’s term (died in March 2022). Sarah Palin along with two others were competing for that slot, but the final results will not be known until Aug. 31. Hopefully Sarah Palin will win.


U. S. House Member Liz Cheney lost by at least 30 points to Wyoming primary challenger Repub Harriet Hageman (a conservative lawyer backed by Trump). Liz Cheney has been the vice-chair of the House’s rigged Jan. 6 committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol protests.

She tried to get the Democrats in Wyoming to vote for her yesterday in the primaries.

Kudos to Wyoming voters for getting rid of left-leaning Cheney from the U. S. House…
