Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, hinted at an event last month that she was considering a run for US Senate.

“If God wants me to do it I will,” Palin said in remarks to Ché Ahn, the senior pastor of the Harvest Rock Church, in footage that was uploaded to Instagram.

Palin would challenge Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a Republican who has distanced herself from former President Donald Trump.

According to Right Wing Watch, Palin made the comments during a July 22 appearance with Ahn at a leadership conference cosponsored by Ahn’s Harvest International Ministry and the Latino Coalition for Israel.

“I would say you guys better be there for me this time, because a lot of people were not there for me last time,” Palin said.
