Palin is looking to take over from Don Young who passed away at the age of 88, "Public service is a calling, and I would be honored to represent the men and women of Alaska in Congress, just as Rep. Young did for 49 years.


"I realize that I have very big shoes to fill, and I plan to honor Rep. Young’s legacy by offering myself up in the name of service to the state he loved and fought for because I share that passion for Alaska and the United States of America."


Palin was an early supporter of then candidate Donald Trump for the GOP nomination in 2016.
