Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has a slight lead among potential Republican primary contenders for the seat of Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska.

That's according to a survey conducted by Harper Polling for the Tea Party Leadership Fund, which is urging Palin to run in the 2014 race. The poll of 379 likely Republican voters was conducted May 6-7.

Palin scored 32 percent support in the poll, compared to 30 percent for Alaska Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and 14 percent for 2010 Senate nominee Joe Miller.

Palin hasn't given any hint that she will run, though she hasn't ruled it out either. Both Treadwell and Miller have formed exploratory committees to possibly run.

Without Palin in the mix, Treadwell leads Miller 45 percent to 26 percent.

Given the state's heavy Republican tilt, Begich will likely face a tough fight regardless of whom the GOP nominates.
