Alaska Sen. Lisa Murkowski, a crucial Republican swing vote in Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation to the Supreme Court, received a playful prodding from the former governor of Alaska on Twitter.
“I can see 2022 from my house,” Sarah Palin tweeted on Friday afternoon, mentioning Murkowski. The tweet was widely viewed as a thinly-veiled threat to challenge Murkowski in her 2022 reelection campaign to the Senate.
“From my house” references a 2008 Saturday Night Live sketch mocking Palin, then John McCain’s running mate. To this day, many Americans believe it was Palin that said “I can see Russia from my house” when in fact the line was delivered by Tina Fey.
Earlier this year, Palin expressed a willingness to run for public office again, according to The Hill. The publication reported that she told Fox News host Mark Levin in April that she was glad she joined the McCain ticket and would do it again “in a heartbeat.”
On Friday Morning, Murkowski was the only Republican to vote against a procedural move advancing Kavanaugh’s nomination.
