Sarah Palin Open to Serving in Late Don Young’s House Seat

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is open to replacing Rep. Don Young after the longtime congressman died late last week.

Palin, 58, made the comments Monday as Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s administration sorts out a complicated process that will include not only a special election to seat a replacement this year but also a primary and general election to determine who will take the seat for the next two-year term.

“Think of those huge shoes that are to be filled when we consider Don Young’s longevity and his passion, his love, his fighting spirit for our wonderful state of Alaska and for the nation as a whole,” Palin told Newsmax. “If I were asked to serve in the House and take his place, I would be humbled and honored, and I would. Yeah, in a heartbeat, I would.”

Palin, a Republican, served as the ninth governor of Alaska from 2006 to 2009. Before she resigned, Palin became John McCain’s vice presidential running mate in the 2008 presidential election, which they lost to the Democrats’ Barack Obama and Joe Biden. Palin has not held office since. (Read more from “Sarah Palin Open to Serving in Late Don Young’s House Seat” HERE)
