Sarah Palin is “of course” interested in running for president in 2016 and hopes to see a woman get the job, she said in an interview released Friday.
“Yeah, I mean, of course, when you have a servant’s heart, when you know that there is opportunity to do all you can to put yourself forward in the name of offering service, anybody would be interested,” Palin told ABC News in the interview, which was conducted on Thursday in Las Vegas.
And, hinting at her own interest in potentially joining the race, she suggested that gender might drive her involvement. “America has had enough of seeing that sign on the Oval Office door saying, ‘No Girls Allowed.’ I know that,” she said. While she “doesn’t necessarily” have to run, she is “happy to drive the competition.”
Palin’s comments come one day before she is expected to attend the Iowa Freedom Summit, a gathering hosted by Rep. Steve King that will bring several potential Republican presidential contenders to the early caucus state hosted by King (R-Iowa).
