"Public service is a calling, and I would be honored to represent the men and women of Alaska in Congress, just as Rep. Young did for 49 years."

Young tragically passed away on March 18, 2022, at the age of 88 and was known as the Republican Party's longest-serving member of Congress in history.

"I realize that I have very big shoes to fill, and I plan to honor Rep. Young's legacy by offering myself up in the name of service to the state he loved and fought for, because I share that passion for Alaska, and the United States of America," Palin continued.

"I first entered politics 30 years ago, when I was elected to city council in Wasilla. I still live in Wasilla; my family is here; my son goes to school here. My heart will always be in Alaska, even when I'm representing this great state in Washington, D.C.
