Sarah Palin Says She’d Replace Late Rep. Don Young ‘In A Heartbeat’

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) hinted at a return to politics on Monday, saying it would be “an honor” to replace late Rep. Don Young (R-Alaska) in Congress.

“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,” the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate and “Masked Singer” alum told Newsmax’s Eric Bolling.

“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,” she said, suggesting she didn’t know Young’s replacement would be decided by election.

“We’ll see how this process is gonna go in terms of filling that seat, but it would be an honor,” added Palin, who’s been in the headlines recently for her COVID vaccine skepticism and tossed defamation suit against The New York Times.

Young died at the age of 88 on Friday after 48 years in Congress.

Palin’s comments later trended on Twitter.
