(RepublicanDaily.org) – Rep. Don Young (R-AK) died on Friday, March 18 at the age of 88. He was the longest-serving member of the House of Representatives. Now, it looks like another well-known Alaska Republican might attempt to take his place.
On Monday, March 21, former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin said she had nothing to lose by running for Young’s seat in a special election that will take place this year.
During an interview with Newsmax, Palin praised Don Young for his promotion of the interests of Alaska and the United States as a whole. She said she would be “humbled and honored” were she asked to replace Rep. Young in the House of Representatives. She did stress leaders in the state were, as of now, unsure as to what the procedure would be for electing Young’s replacement. You can hear Palin’s remarks for yourself in the video below.

Palin also took the opportunity to criticize the media over its attacks on her party and its interests. In spite of this, however, Palin says she believes ordinary Americans know what’s really going on in the country and know what they need from their leaders.
Do you think Sarah Palin would do a good job in Congress?
