Sarah Palin has no intentions of running for a U.S. Senate seat from Arizona in 2012. Her intentions on the U.S. presidency, however, are still unknown.

The former running mate of Sen. John McCain in the 2008 presidential election told KNXV-TV in a brief interview Friday at Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport that she has not considered a Senate candidacy in Arizona.

"That's not what my plan is, no," Palin said. "I haven't really considered that at all. ... You have some great senators here."

Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl is not seeking re-election in 2012. Speculation about Palin's interest in his seat rose when she recently purchased a part-time home in Scottsdale.

Palin, the former governor of Alaska, told KNXV-TV she was just in town to "thaw out" for the weekend.

Palin's daughter, Bristol, has also recently purchased a Valley home in the city of Maricopa.
