Sarah Palin, Does not Suggest She will Run for Alaska Senate – Unless, of course, it’s necessary.
Sarah Palin, during a radio interview, was asked if she would run for the Alaskan Senate seat currently held by Democrat, Mark Begich . In response, she replied she’s been asked about running for the seat, however, she was waiting to see if there were other candidates in the race that were not the “same old politicians in the state.”(Washington Post). Understanding that there is a tiny bit of angst by the standard rank and file Republican’s in DC and elsewhere that want to continue the status quo, Sarah Palin is a thorn in their side, along with any other politico that bucks their system.
According to the Anchorage Daily News – there are two GOP candidates, Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and Joe Miller. Miller won the 2010 GOP primary against Sen. Lisa Murkowski only to lose to her in the general election as she mounted a historic write-in campaign.”. On the one hand, there’s the Tea Party/Independent Joe Miller, and on the other, the Bush Appointee with private sector experience, and apparently little polling has been done, as of yet to indicate the acceptance of either candidate by those actually living in Alaska.
It remains to be seen if Palin would enter a race, however, by the tone of the interview, it appears, at this juncture unlikely. It's just Sarah Palin speaking her mind - which is always refreshing.
