Sarah Palin: I'd Run for Higher Office Again 'In a Heartbeat'

By    |   Monday, 09 April 2018 11:57 AM

Sarah Palin – who gained national prominence as Sen. John McCain's vice-presidential running mate in 2008 – says she's game to run for higher office again.

"I would do it again in a heartbeat," Palin told radio and TV personality Mark Levin on the Fox News Channel's "Life, Liberty & Levin" show on Sunday.

Was she glad she ran with McCain, even though the pair suffered a crushing loss to Barack Obama and Joe Biden? Yes, the former Alaska governor told Levin.

"I would have pushed back harder on some of those who were trying to mold me into something that I was not during the campaign. I would've pushed back and gotten more truth out there, but heck yes," she said.

Palin said she believed McCain "probably" selected her to run with him for "political, practical reasons."

"He probably knew they needed someone younger, needed a female and needed a true conservative to balance everything else out,” Palin said.

“And they were smart enough to have chosen someone with a lot of administrative experience. That was my career, it was in administration.”

A 2020 GOP bid by Palin would appear to be remote as President Donald Trump has already announced he will seek re-election. He's also likely to stick with Vice President Mike Pence as his running mate.
