State of play: Election officials on Wednesday announced the results of the state’s new ranked-choice voting system.
- For races in which no candidate earns 50% of the vote, the candidates with the fewest votes are eliminated.
- When a candidate is eliminated, their votes are reallocated to voters’ second choice, per the state’s division of elections.
The big picture: Murkowski, a moderate Senate Republican, held off an intra-party challenge from Tshibaka, who earned Trump’s endorsement, and is the former commissioner of the Alaska Department of Administration.
