Will a Sen. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, join conservative firebrands like Sen.Ted Cruz, R-Texas, and Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., in the Senate?

The former Alaska governor admitted on Sean Hannity’s radio show on Tuesday that she has at least considered the idea.

“I’ve considered it because people have requested me [to] consider it,” Palin explained. “I’m still waiting to see what the lineup will be. And hoping there will be some new blood, new energy. Not just kind of picking from the same old politicians in the state that come from political families.”

If she runs in 2014, Palin will challenge Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska.

“Sen. Mark Begich has got to be replaced,” Palin said. “He had not done what he had promised to do for the people of Alaska, which is to represent what it is the nation needs in terms of energy development.”

Palin, however, stressed that her focus remained on getting “new blood” into the Senate.

“Ted Cruz needs reinforcements,” she said during the interview. “My political action committee, the people who I am close to and trust, we work together beating the bushes to find people who will run.”
