(RoyalPatriot.com )- During an interview on Newsmax Monday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin suggested that she may run to replace the late Alaska Congressman Don Young who passed away last week at the age of 88.
During an appearance on Newsmax’s “The Balance,” host Eric Bolling asked Palin if she was ready to announce a run for Young’s vacant House seat.
Saying they were “huge shoes” to fill, Palin praised Young’s tenure in office and his passion, love, and “fighting spirit” for Alaska. She said she would be humbled and honored to replace Young, but added that she would see how the process of selecting his replacement goes.
Palin said that she would never change the minds of the media that already “clobbered” her, but she would “have faith that there are enough Americans who understand where you’re coming from.”
She said there are plenty of Americans “who understand what we need,” adding that she has nothing to lose.

Congressman Don Young was the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives, being elected for the first time in 1972. When asked in 2020 how long he planned to remain in office, Young told the New York Times that the decision was up to God or the voters.
