Sarah Palin fails to win Congress seat as Alaskan native makes history

Firebrand Republican Sarah Palin has failed in her bid to be elected to Congress, 14 years after she was the vice presidential nominee.

Democrat Mary Peltola won the special election to fill Alaska‘s only seat in the House of Representatives, making her the first Alaskan Native to serve in the House and the first woman elected to the state’s House seat.
