Sarah Palin ‘Looking to Join Senate for Three Years’

ANCHORAGE, Ala. – Former Alaskan governor Sarah Palin has announced that, if she wins a U.S. Senate seat in 2014, she is “looking forward to serving the American people for up to three years.”

Palin announced this week that she is considering a run and, although senate terms are six years for most Americans, the former governor confirmed that she only intended on being there for three, stating that “staying for the full term would be a waste of taxpayer’s dollars.”

Palin acknowledged that this would equate to just half a term, whereas when she quit as governor of Alaska she had served three-quarters of a standard tenure, but that she “did not have a contract with Fox News when first became governor, and it’s not like a government salary will pay me an average of $15.85 per word like Fox did.

Palin will also be campaigning for other Republicans and, with unwavering conviction, told CNN: “Time’s-a-wasting. Things are moving really quickly and if we don’t get out there and defend this republic then America will be transformed into something we do not recognize.”
