    Sarah Palin's political comeback is anything but a sure thing in her home state. Palin recently filed her candidacy for Alaska's sole seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, which was held by Rep. Don Young for 49 years until his death last month. While many around the United States consider the former Republican vice presidential candidate and Alaska governor to be a culture warrior -- she has former President Donald Trump's "complete and total endorsement" -- many of those whose vote she needs think that she's out of touch with Alaskans. Alaskan retiree and Vietnam veteran Ron Johnson, who spoke with Alaska Public Media, lives about 25 miles from Palin's hometown of Wasilla, the heartland of Alaska conservatism. He voted for Palin for governor and is a solid Trump supporter, but that doesn't mean he wants Palin to win. "I think she's out of touch with Alaskans right now," he said. "She's moved into a different circle. She was a vice presidential candidate. Yeah, I don't think that the people here — we don't take her very seriously." Some...
    Sarah Palin, on April 1, announced that she is running for Alaska’s lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, and former President Donald Trump has endorsed her. Fourteen years after being chosen as the late Sen. John McCain’s running mate in the 2008 presidential election, the former Alaska governor still has her share of admirers on the far right. But conservative Washington Post opinion writer Henry Olsen, in his April 4 column, lays out some reasons why the 58-year-old Palin’s “road back to relevance is likely harder than the Republican icon expects.” “Love her or loathe her, Palin’s brand of showmanship has been impossible to ignore,” Olsen writes. “In her prime, Palin’s mixture of conservative sloganeering — ‘lamestream media’ — and political stunting was a PG-rated version of former President Donald Trump before he rode down the escalator at Trump Tower. No wonder, then, that Trump has enthusiastically endorsed her as she tries to rekindle the magic.” Olsen continues, “Her past and Trump’s endorsement clearly make her a contender. But they don’t necessarily make her the favorite.” Sarah Palin...
    Former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin announced she's running for a seat in the House in order to combat the 'far-left,' who she said is 'destroying the country.'  Palin has joined a crowded field of nearly 40 candidates looking to fill the seat vacated by the late U.S. Rep. Don Young, whose death last month threw Alaskan politicians in a frenzy.  In a statement, Palin said: '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.  'America is at a tipping point,' she said in the statement. 'As I've watched the far left destroy the country, I knew I had to step up and join the fight.'  Sarah Palin, former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate, is running for Congress She said she was running in order to combat the far-left 'destroying the country' Palin said that her fellow Alaskans, just like the rest of America, are struggling with rising inflations rates, supply shortages and soaring gas prices, problems she...
    "It would be an honor": Sarah Palin responds to calls urging her to replace a late Alaskan Rep. youtu.be When Bolling asked if Palin truly is "up for that challenge" of being in Congress, Palin compared the feat to the one Donald Trump took when he ran for president. "Well you know, when you have nothing to lose — kind of like President Trump. In one sense, you have everything to lose, as Trump gave up so much," Palin began. "But on the other hand, you know, when the media has already clobbered you, as bad as you can get clobbered, and the haters, you’re not going to change their mind," she continued. "But you have faith that there are enough Americans who understand where you’re coming from, your love for the country, your servant’s heart, um yeah, I think there are enough Americans who understand what we need and when I have nothing to lose as is the case today, I think it would be good for my family even. Yeah, I'd serve."Anything else?Numerous Alaskan Republicans...

As Palin arrived at federal court in Lower Manhattan to take the witness stand for the second day in the trial against the newspaper, she had advice for jurors.

The former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate is suing the Times over a 2017 editorial headlined “America’s Lethal Politics.” It was published in the op-ed section after a shooting at a congressional baseball team practice where U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise was wounded. The editorial incorrectly linked Palin’s political rhetoric to a 2011 mass shooting involving Rep. Gabby Giffords, which the newspaper corrected, also tweeting an apology. A New York Times spokesperson released the following statement: “In this trial we are seeking to reaffirm a foundational principle of American law:...
    Former Gov. Christine Todd Whitman (R-NJ) said Wednesday that former President Donald Trump’s conditional endorsement in the Alaska gubernatorial race is a sign that the Republican Party is headed in a scary direction. Trump a day before endorsed Gov. Mike Dunleavy (R), but only on one condition: He must refuse to support Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) in her reelection bid in 2022. Murkowski of course voted earlier this year to convict the former president on a charge of incitement of insurrection following the Jan. 6 U.S. Capitol riot. “Alaska needs Mike Dunleavy as Governor now more than ever,” Trump said in a Tuesday statement. “He has my Complete and Total Endorsement but, this endorsement is subject to his non-endorsement of Senator Lisa Murkowski who has been very bad for Alaska, including losing ANWAR, perhaps the most important drilling site in the world, and much else. In other words, if Mike endorses her, which is his prerogative, my endorsement of him is null and void, and of no further force or effect!” On CNN’s OutFront, guest host Poppy Harlow asked the former governor...
    Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy confirmed Friday that he would seek re-election in Alaska, but he may face his predecessor in next year's top-four primary. Bill Walker, an independent who was elected to his only term in 2014, told the Anchorage Daily News he was giving "very serious consideration" to seeking a comeback. The only other notable politician who has expressed interest in running so far is former state Rep. Les Gara, a Democrat who formed an exploratory committee last month and recently said that, while he hasn't made a final decision, he's "likely" to get in. If Walker runs, he'll continue a long and eventful career in Last Frontier politics. Walker got his start as a Republican in the 1970s as a member of the city council and later became the mayor of Val. He went on to serve as general counsel for the Alaska Gasline Port Authority. Walker first ran for governor in 2010 when he challenged incumbent Sean Parnell, who had ascended to the state's top post the previous year after Sarah Palin resigned, but he lost...
    JUNEAU, Alaska (AP) — A new private venture headed by a former Alaska governor will attempt to privatize the state's corporation that would bring natural gas to market from the North Slope. Former independent Gov. Bill Walker will lead Alaska Gasline & LNG LLC with Keith Meyer, the former head of the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation, Alaska’s Energy Desk reported Monday. Walker spent decades working to launch the project and on Monday repeated his emphasis on the venture's opportunity to deliver jobs, money and cheap energy to the state. Meyer led the gas line corporation during Walker's administration until he was ousted after the election of Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy. Meyer approached the state corporation in January with a proposal to take over the project with private backers, although at the time he declined to disclose the company backing him. Walker and Meyer have partnered with Fairbanks entrepreneur Bernie Karl and the Laborers Local 341 union as the only current investors in the project. “While there’s four now, we think there will be 400 or 4,000 because I think Alaskans...
