Sarah Palin hinted at a 2022 Senate run just hours after Alaskan Senator Lisa Murkowski voted against advancing Judge Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
The former Alaskan governor taunted the incumbent in a Friday afternoon tweet.
“Hey, @LisaMurkowski – I can see 2022 from my house…” Said Palin.
Hey @LisaMurkowski – I can see 2022 from my house…

Murkowski is up for re-election in 2022.
Also, Palin seeing anything from her house seems to be a reference to actress Tina Fey’s popular Saturday Night Live portrayal of Palin from the 2008 presidential election season where Fey’s caricature claimed she could see Russia from her house.
Moreover, Palin’s tweet was delivered shortly after Murkowski voted no on Kavanaugh’s advancement while saying it was the most “difficult evaluation of a decision” she ever had to make.
“In my view he’s not the best man for the court at this time,” said Murkowski. “This has truly been the most difficult evaluation of a decision that I have ever had to make.”
