(RepublicanNews.org) – Former President Donald Trump has been shopping around for candidates to run against RINOS (Republicans in Name Only) in the upcoming 2022 midterm elections. He’s been meeting with prospective opponents to go up against Rep. Liz Cheney (R-WY) at his New Jersey Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster.
At the same time, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (R) recently told the New Apostolic Reformation leader Ché Ahn she would consider running against Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) if “God wants me to do it.”

Palin told the audience they better be there for her this time if she chooses to run because many of them didn’t turn out for her last time, referring to her 2008 White House bid with the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ).
Trump already endorsed Alaska’s former Department of Administration Commissioner Kelly Tshibaka to run against Murkowski, and she received the endorsement of the Alaska Republican State Central Committee in early July.
However, Palin does stand a good shot at advancing to Alaska’s general election. Under Alaska’s current election system, all qualifying candidates compete in a nonpartisan primary election. Then, the top four candidates move to the general election, where voters select their preferred candidate using a ranked-choice election system.
