Palin ‘seriously interested’ in 2016 run, adding another big name to growing potential field.

Nine potential Republican presidential contenders gathered Saturday in Iowa for the first cattle call of 2016. DES MOINES — Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin told The Washington Post in an interview Friday that she is “seriously interested” in running for the White House in 2016. Sarah Palin (R) continued to tease a potential bid for the Republican nomination for president this week leading up to a Saturday address at the Iowa Freedom Summit. But in the same conversation, she appeared to downplay her interest, suggesting she is merely keeping her option open. “It’s not a major story because 2016 really is still far off,” she said of the Palin-for-president talk. “I think it’s a major story because maybe you guys are bored,” referring to the mainstream media. (Surrounded by national reporters, she resisted referring to them as the “lamestream” media.) Then, bringing the exchange full meta, she later added, “It’s a significant step, of course, for anyone to publicly announce that they’re interested. … Who wouldn’t be interested?

And Rick Santorum – who won the 2012 Iowa caucuses – appeared to give Palin a copy of his new book, which tells the story of raising a special-needs child – something that the two have in common. In her remarks to ABC, Palin also suggested entering the GOP race with other potential big-name candidates — including former presidential nominee Mitt Romney, former Florida Gov.

Jeb Bush and a host of governors and senators — was to perhaps help get a woman elected president. “America has had enough of seeing that … sign on the Oval Office door saying, ‘No Girls Allowed.’ I know that,” she said. “It doesn’t necessarily have to be me. … but happy to drive that competition because competition will make everyone better.” The summit on Saturday will be in Des Moines and is scheduled to also include Texas Sen. In the lobby, she signed autographs for some hotel guests and mingled with the dozens of GOP figures congregated near the lobby bar, including former House speaker Newt Gingrich. On the campaign trail last year, Palin traveled extensively to bolster her handpicked candidates, including stops in Iowa with Republican Joni Ernst, who won a Senate seat.
