Former Gov. Sarah Palin said today she would love to be the next congressional representative for Alaska — if asked.
Palin, who in 2008 joined the presidential ticket of Sen. John McCain, told Newsmax host Eric Bolling, “If I were asked to serve in the House and take his place I would be humbled and honored … In a heartbeat, I would. We will see how this process goes in filling that seat – it would be an honor.”
The lifelong Alaskan then criticized the Biden administration, focusing on surging in gas prices, “because of their lack of education or purposeful destruction of so many sectors of the economy,” Palin said on Newsmax.
“Some people, certainly not in the White House, are aware of what petroleum products are, what transportation costs affect when it comes to supply chain. (But) because of their lack of education or purposeful destruction of so many sectors of the economy – they certainly look to blame somebody else,” she said.
She has done this before, hinting last year that she might run against Sen. Lisa Murkowski.
Already in the congressional race is Nick Begich, the Republican from Chugiak; Chris Bye, a Libertarian from Fairbanks; Bob Lyons, a Republican from Houston (AK); Randy Purham, a Republican from Soldotna; and Shannon Scott Evans, a Republican from Alaska.
Several others are rumored to be considering running for the seat, including Sen. Josh Revak, who was co-chair of the Alaskans for Don Young campaign.
