Pronouns for Peltola: Mary Peltola, a Democrat serving in Congress for Alaska, posted her pronouns on the screen during Tuesday’s debate in Healy, Alaska, where she attended via Zoom. Her pronouns are she/her.
The debate featured, in person, Chris Bye, Nick Begich, and Sarah Palin, pictured above with Peltola and her pronouns on a video screen at the student-led candidate forum at Tri-Valley High School. There was a separate forum for Senate candidates on Oct. 24, with candidates Kelly Tshibaka and Pat Chesbro, and Sen. Lisa Murkowski was not able to attend.
Fact-checking Peltola: Congresswoman Mary Peltola says in her ad that she puts pressure on Biden (and links herself to Sen. Dan Sullivan and Sen. Lisa Murkowski), and yet she voted with Biden 100% in her short time in Congress and has a 100% Biden score, according to fivethirtyeight.com.
