Alaska voters head to polls for key primaries

Voters in Alaska are getting their first opportunity to use the ranked-choice voting system when they head to the polls Tuesday. The state switched to the new system for general elections, which includes Tuesday's special election for the House seat of former longtime Rep. Don Young, who died in March. Former Republican Gov. Sarah Palin is looking to return to elected office in that race. CBS News political director Fin Gomez reports.


Key primaries underway in Alaska and Wyoming

Several key primary elections will take place Tuesday in Alaska and Wyoming, with Wyoming featuring one of the most highly-anticipated elections of the day. Republican Rep. Liz Cheney, an outspoken critic of former President Donald Trump, is significantly down in the polls against Trump-backed candidate Harriet Hageman. Antjuan Seawright, a Democratic strategist, and Joe Watkins, a former aide to President George H. W. Bush, join CBS News to discuss what these races mean.
