In an interview with Breitbart.com last month, Palin said her door was “wide open” and that she hoped to “share more broadly the message of the beauty of freedom and the imperative of defending our republic and restoring this most exceptional nation.”

Palin said she was looking forward to helping back conservative candidates in the 2014 election.

“It’s going to be like 2010, but this time around we need to shake up the GOP machine that tries to orchestrate away too much of the will of constitutional conservatives who don’t give a hoot how they do it in D.C.,” Palin said.
