Washington: Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin has said she is contemplating a bid for U.S. Senate against Democrat Mark Begich in 2014.
Palin, who was also 2008`s GOP vice presidential nominee, said she has been considering it as people wanted her to consider it.
She told conservative radio host Sean Hannity on his show that she is still waiting to see what the lineup will be. And hoping there will be some new blood, new energy.
Begich, a former mayor of Anchorage, was elected in 2008. He defeated longtime GOP Senator Ted Stevens, who died in 2010 in a plane crash.
Alaska Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and Joe Miller, a Republican who lost a U.S. Senate bid in Alaska in 2010, have both said they will run against Begich next year.
Palin told Hannity that Senator Mark Begich has got to be replaced, as he has not done what he had promised to do for the people of Alaska.
