“If I were asked to serve in the House and take his place, I would be humbled and honored and I would. Yeah, in a heartbeat I would,” Palin told Newsmax in an interview, adding that “we’ll see how this process is going to go in terms of filling that seat but it would be an honor.”
Fortunately for us (and oddly something that a former Alaska Governor should know, HNNNNNGH!) is that Young’s seat must be filled by special election and not appointment.
