Following Sen. Lisa Murkowski’s “no” vote on the motion to proceed on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation, Sarah Palin hinted at a future Senate run.
Taking her shot on Twitter, the former Governor of Alaska stated that she can see 2022 from her house.
Hey @LisaMurkowski – I can see 2022 from my house…
— Sarah Palin (@SarahPalinUSA) October 5, 2018
The Tweet is in reference to a quote misattributed to Palin, originating on an episode of Saturday Night Live.
If Palin were to run against Murkowski, the fight would happen in the Primary Election season, as Murkowski calls herself a Republican, despite voting like a Democrat oftentimes.
Murkowski’s no vote comes in response to multiple un-corroborated sexual misconduct allegations laid against Judge Kavanaugh. Despite her opposition, Kavanaugh is expected to be confirmed over the weekend.
If this race occurs, it won’t be the first time Palin and Murkowski have fought against each-other in a Primary Election. While Palin has never faced her on her own, she supported her primary challenger in 2010, who narrowly lost.
A lot will play into a 2022 challenge. Most prominently will be President Donald Trump reelection campaign in 2020.
Trump would likely support a Palin primary challenge, giving her a major boost, especially if he’s still in the White House.
Department of Justice Investigating After FBI Finds Nine Pennsylvania Mail-In Ballots Discarded in Ditch – All for Donald Trump
The Department of Justice announced that it has begun an investigation into the destruction of nine mail-in ballots found in Luzerne County, Pennsylvania.
In a statement, the DOJ announced that the nine ballots had been found “discarded.” Seven ballots that were unsealed were all cast for Donald Trump, and two others were sealed, and remain unopened.
The FBI is reportedly investigating the suspicious ballot disposal.
A DOJ statement is describing the destroyed ballots as military ballots. Rules and procedures exist for military service members to cast votes in their home states when they’re stationed at installations across the country and overseas.
Since Monday, FBI personnel working together with the Pennsylvania State Police have conducted numerous interviews and recovered and reviewed certain physical evidence. Election officials in Luzerne County have been cooperative. At this point we can confirm that a small number of military ballots were discarded. Investigators have recovered nine ballots at this time. Some of those ballots can be attributed to specific voters and some cannot. All nine ballots were cast for presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Our inquiry remains ongoing and we expect later today to share our up to date findings with officials in Luzerne County. It is the vital duty of government to ensure that every properly cast vote is counted.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany brought up the concerning election interference in Thursday’s press conference, citing the incident as an example of why President Trump and many Americans are highly concerned about the novel use of national mail-in electioneering in 2020.

Pennsylvania is arguably the most crucial and closely contested state in the 2020 election. The outcome of the entire contest could very conceivably be decided by a few votes in the state.
