Sarah Palin Looks to Come Back into Politics

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin claimed she could “in a second” accept the position of Alaskan Rep. Don Young (R) if she were asked to fill the position.

This position has been left empty by the death of Young.

Young’s death has left enormous shoes that will have to be replaced. This especially true upon contemplating Don Young’s career and his enthusiasm for the magnificent state of Alaska.

Enormous shoes are also left to fill, due to Young’s compassion and winning mentality for our country overall, the former governor said.

“The opportunity to sit in the House to take his position would be a honor and privilege, and I would accept it without hesitation.”

“Yeah, without hesitation,” Palin said in an interview with Newsmax, noting that “we’ll see where this process goes in regards of filling the seat, but it would be a privilege.”

Young’s office tweeted on Friday that he “died today while heading back to Alaska to be there with the people he adored.”

Young had been flying home to be with his family and friends.

Representative Don Young will be laid to rest in the Capitol next week.

More Details on Palin

As a result of Young’s death, Nancy Pelosi announced on Monday he would be laid to rest in the House the following week.

A libel case filed by Palin against The New York Times, in which she tried to hold the newspaper liable for printing an editorial wrongly tying her to a big massacre, recently made headlines in the United States.

The Times was found not to be responsible in the case by a court; nevertheless, Palin’s team of lawyers said she intends to seek a new hearing.

More on Don Young’s Legacy

Young, the chamber’s longest-serving lawmaker, died Friday evening at the airport while being on his way back to his home state of California.

He was 88 years old. Young, a native of California, has been a member of Congress since he was elected to the House of Representatives in 1973.

Young was serving his 25th tenure in office and was vying for re-election to a 26th. Young is survived by his wife, Anne, and their two children.

As dean of Congress, he was by far the most senior leader of any political group and the last working member of the House to be elected during the decade of the 1970s.

If Palin were to take Young’s place, it would be interesting to see if she decides to run as a RINO or as a Trump Republican. Palin, in recent years, has been quiet, but made headlines on key issues.

As of now, she is the biggest name yet to express interest in Young’s seat.
