Sarah Palin sent one tweet about the Kavanaugh vote that had everyone wondering
Brett Kavanaugh has been confirmed to the Supreme Court.
Over the past few years, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has stayed out of the spotlight.
But that all changed when she sent one tweet about Kavanaugh’s confirmation vote.
Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski voted no on Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
Her vote was canceled out by Sen. Steve Daines (R-MT), a “yes” vote who was attending his daughter’s wedding.
When word got out that Murkowski would be the lone Republican “no” vote, it caught Sarah Palin’s attention.
Palin sent a tweet teasing a potential 2022 challenge to Murkowski.
Hey @LisaMurkowski – I can see 2022 from my house…

This isn’t the first time Murkowski has bucked conservatives.
In 2010, Murkowski lost the Republican nomination to Joe Miller, a Tea Party candidate supported by Palin.
But Murkowski refused to accept the will of the voters.
So she mounted a write-in campaign largely funded by unions and Super PACs.
Murkowski ended up maintaining her power winning less than 40% of the vote.
Murkowski is lucky she doesn’t have to face the voters this November.
But Palin will still be a formidable challenger in 2022.
