Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin put current GOP Alaska Senator from Alaska Lisa Murkowski on notice by dropping a huge hint that she will challenge Lisa in the GOP primary in 2022.
“If God wants me to do it I will,” Palin said during a discussion last week with New Apostolic Reformation leader Ché Ahn. “What I would do, if I were to announce, I would say, ‘you know what, you guys better be there for me this time.”
“I would say you guys better be there for me this time because a lot of people were not there for me last time,” she said reminding the conservative Christian audience that their lack of support hurt her during the 2008 vice-presidential campaign with Sen. John McCain.
Palin defended her decision to resign as governor of Alaska in 2009.
“There’s a difference between quitting and saying enough is enough,” she said, complaining about a stream of ethics probes and FOIA requests initiated by the Obama administration and outside liberal groups.
“I knew that if I handed the reins to Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell, he would continue for that last year, that fiscally and socially conservative agenda that I was elected upon.”
Palin also took a swipe at the Trump-endorsed candidate who has already said they would take on Lisa in the primary, Kelly Tshibaka.
“The kind of scary thing about it is, I’ve been in politics it seems like all my life up there in Alaska, and I’ve never heard of her,” Palin said.
“We’ve got to get out there,” she told the audience. “We have to be the ones shaking it up. And essentially, yeah, taking over. Otherwise, what was given to God will be taken away from God.”
She urged pastors to work harder: “How dare we strip from our Creator what our founders had dedicated to him?” she said.
“How dare you try to take that back and change if for mankind, for some kind of secular use, secular enjoyment?”

Sarah Palin if she will run against Murkowski. “If God wants me to do it, I will. You guys better be there for me this time. Because a lot of people weren’t there for me last time, and that’s why, characterization-wise (wtf), I got clobbered.” Then they pray.
