Response to Simeon Salus (Reply #8)

9. Well you might also recall that she was primaried

and ran in the general as a write-in Republican, where in order to get the vote to count, voters had to spell her name correctly. Enough people did and the rest of history. Her "base" has been the Native Alaskans there and she has pushed for things on their behalf.

Of course now the at-large member of Congress there is Peltola who is a Native, so times are slowly changing. This was all made possible thanks to ranked-choice.

She really needs to just run as an Independent and call it a day in any case.
