SEATTLE, May 1 (UPI) — Sarah Palin’s supporters are urged to contribute money toward recruiting her to run for the U.S. Senate, the Tea Party Leadership Fund said.

“We know that, with Sarah in the Senate, conservatives across America can rest a little easier at night knowing she’s at the watch,” an email from Todd Cefratti of the Leadership Fund, sent this week to supporters, read in part.

She would run against incumbent Mark Begich, D-Alaska, the Los Angeles Times noted.

Palin abandoned the Alaska governorship in 2009 in the middle of her first term. She ran as the Republican vice presidential candidate in 2008.

“I don’t see Governor Palin as a likely opponent [of Begich],” said Anchorage pollster Matt Larkin, whose firm worked for Palin’s gubernatorial campaign. “She doesn’t have the popularity she once had in the state of Alaska. It’s fallen off significantly.”

    I think she’d be great, too. Probably a lot more effective as a U.S. senator than she would have been as veep anyway.

      @btincc-I completely agree with your statement. She is so much better than the current bunch of liberals there is no comparison. She would do a great job enforcing our rights from the bunch that wants to take them away.

    I would love to have her in the senate. One thing is LVS she is one not to compromise she stands for the core principles of conservatism. No amnesty, enforce current gun laws don’t add more, is for family and believes in individualism.

      Ah shucks LVS, lighten up already. You have to admit that you miss Tina Fey. Don’t be such an old fuddy duddy.

        @marco-I like Tina pretty well also. Even if she is a lib. I just won’t ask her about her politics.

          and don’t ask Palin about how she learned about Russia.

          Facts are important. It was Tina Fey, an actress, impersonating Palin that said “I can see Russia from my house!” In the 2008 interview with Charles Gibson, Palin actually said They’re our next-door neighbors, and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska, from an island in Alaska. There is a difference in acting on tv and what is realty. No wonder our country has so many problems–it’s called low information voters.

          @low info-not to worry. I would vote for her any way. She is head over heals better than any damorat that could run. Only STUPD People that STINK are to ignorant to vote. You really have to wonder about someone who is always trying to tell the world how smart she is don’t you?

    How embarrassing for Linda Upmeyer to be seen with Mamma Grizley and then to actually go on record that she appreciated the advise that McCains nightmare gave her. Probably something to do with lipstick and pigs.
