Palin was previously a strong supporter of the president-elect throughout his campaign. She endorsed the billionaire in January during his primary campaign, ahead of the Iowa state caucuses.
As The Right Scoop reports, earlier it was reported and confirmed by Kellyanne Conway that Sarah Palin was NOT in consideration for any position in the Trump administration:
NY POST – Sarah Palin’s isn’t in the running for a cabinet job in the Trump administration — at least as far as the senior adviser to his transition team is aware.
“I know that they’re close and that she’s been a great, loyal friend and adviser to him throughout the campaign, but I haven’t seen her as part of the cabinet mix,” Kellyanne Conway told Fox News’ “The Kelly File” on Monday night.
Conway quickly added: “But that doesn’t mean that she’s not.”

But she’s not the only one in consideration for VA Secretary. It was also reported today that Pete Hegseth is also in consideration:
