MADRID, 24 Nov. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has lost in her fight for a seat in the United States House of Representatives, against Mary Peltola, who will make history as the first native representative from her state in the House of Representatives.
Palin, who aspired to the country's Vice Presidency in the 2018 elections, led by then-Senator John McCain, had already suffered a previous defeat in a first attempt to reach the Capitol and, according to projections by the mainstream media, in the elections on November 8 has added another one.
Peltola, 49, will also end nearly five decades of Republican dominance, since the seat was virtually owned by Don Young, who died last March and entered the House of Representatives in 1973.
In any case, the Alaska results do not jeopardize the Republican Party's control of the House of Representatives. The Democrats, for their part, aspire to retain control of the Senate for the next two years.
