“I don’t know the former governor’s interest in being involved in elected politics again and she’s really been out of the picture in the state for many years now,” Murkowski told The Hill.
“I don’t know whether this is just wishful thinking by some that would like to see me out so they’re looking for names,” she added.
Fox News and conservative talk radio host Sean Hannity started the buzz over a possible Palin comeback.
“I tell you, the one person I’d love in Alaska to run against her would be Sarah Palin,” Hannity said on his radio show Tuesday. “Maybe Governor Palin could make a political comeback. I think the people there would like that a lot.”
