Sarah Palin says she is considering a run for U.S. Senate in 2014.

Alaska’s most high-profile Republican says a lot of things for attention, obviously, but this opportunity seems both within reach and winnable for her.

The 2008 GOP V.P. candidate has been buzzed about as a challenger for Democratic Sen. Mark Begich, who upset Ted Stevens in the 2008 election.

Sarah Palin told Fox News Tuesday that she’s considering a run because so many people have asked her to, but she also said she’s not deciding yet.


She added she’s waiting to see who will enter the Senate race and hoping there “will be some new blood, new energy” from the GOP candidate pool.

Palin recently returned to Fox News as a paid commentator, while Alaska Republicans have two candidates so far in Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell and Joe Miller.

Miller won the 2010 GOP primary against Sen. Lisa Murkowski only to lose to her in the general election as she mounted a historic write-in campaign.

It’s unclear if Sarah Palin could clear the field by jumping in, or whether she’d be willing to find out, but as always, we’ll stay tuned – just like she wants.
