The Mama Grizzly says she’s considering running for the U.S. Senate in Alaska.
But Republicans involved in Alaska and Senate politics tell The Daily Caller they believe there’s little chance Sarah Palin will actually pull the trigger and launch a campaign for the 2014 election.
“It’s my sense her signing with Fox is a good indication she will not run,” said one Republican who works in Alaska politics, referencing the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate’s rejoining Fox News as a commentator last month.
On Sean Hannity’s radio show this week, Palin toyed with prospect of running to take on Alaska Democrat Sen. Mark Begich.
“I’ve considered it because people have requested me considering it,” she said.
But Palin — who flirted with the idea running for president in 2012 but ultimately decided against it — suggested in the Hannity interview that she would rather someone else run against Begich.
“I’m still waiting to see what the lineup will be and hoping that, there again, there will be some new blood, some new energy,” she said.
