"Mark, after looking at your voting record I can see why you are looking for a distraction. You have voted FOR Obamacare, FOR massive tax increases, FOR carbon taxes which could cost Alaskans 21,000 jobs, AGAINST pro-life legislation, and there's so much more. You even flip-flopped to oppose the nation’s balanced budget amendment. You agree with, and vote with, ultra-liberal Senators Chuck SchumerCharles SchumerElection-year politics: Senate Dems shun GOP vulnerables Democrats press Wells Fargo CEO for more answers on scandal 78 lawmakers vote to sustain Obama veto MORE and Harry ReidHarry ReidNo GOP leaders attending Shimon Peres funeral Overnight Regulation: Feds finalize rule expanding sick leave Anti-trade senators say chamber would be crazy to pass TPP MORE approximately 90% of the time," she continues.

"Mark, you recently said, 'Alaskans pick who they want based on what’s good for Alaska.' Couldn’t agree more, Mark, which is why many hope to see great changes for our great state following the upcoming 2014 election. In the meantime, we suppose we’ll see much more playing of the ol' Washington political game using those inside D.C. reporters each time you have to distract from yet another bad vote for Alaska in the U.S. Senate. It cheers us up and gives us good opportunity to remind Alaskans just how loyal to the Obama agenda you have been."

Begich told CNN on Wednesday that he didn't expect Palin to run against him, a day after she said she has "considered" it.

"I know she doesn't spend a lot of time in Alaska," Begich said. "I go back to Alaska a lot. I spend a lot of time in Alaska, and I don't see her. She'll have to figure that out."

Few in Alaska, Democrat or Republican, expect Palin to jump into the race.
