She got 32% of the repub vote. Now she's going to battle all out to win. Interesting dynamics on what tactical voting will ensue, but with lines like ""Well, perhaps it's time they met one Republican woman who won't quit on Alaska," she said, taking a swipe at Palin, who resigned last year in the middle of her first term as governor." ~ Huff, she'll have a strong backing from many.
