A national tea party group — the Tea Party Leadership Fund — hopes to convince former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to run for Senate next year.

As part of the effort, it is soliciting donations, The Los Angeles Times reports. The group sent an e-mail this week telling potential donors that Palin has a "clear path" to defeat The Last Frontier's incumbent Democrat, Mark Begich.

“You and I both know that Sarah Palin is a fighter who will stand up to Harry Reid and his pals in the Senate to protect our Constitution on issues like amnesty, gun control and our nation’s crushing debt,” read the e-mail from Todd Cefaratti of the Tea Party Leadership Fund, according to the Times.

“We know that, with Sarah in the Senate, conservatives across America can rest a little easier at night knowing that she’s at the watch.”

Some think it's unlikely Palin will run. “I don’t see Gov. Palin really as a likely opponent,” pollster Matt Larkin of Dittman Research, which did work for Palin’s gubernatorial campaign, told the Times.

“She doesn’t have the popularity that she once had in the state of Alaska. It’s fallen off significantly.”

Palin hasn't said anything about running. She hasn't had much involvement with politics in her home state since leaving the governor's office in 2009 and now spends much of her time in Arizona. But recently Palin has begun tweeting about Alaska.
