Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin plans to raise money for U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski's re-election campaign, a move Palin's camp says should end speculation the governor is eyeing the senator's seat.

Palin is expected to hold at least one fundraiser for Murkowski. Both are Republicans.

Meghan Stapleton, spokeswoman for SarahPAC, the governor's political action committee, says Palin thinks Murkowski is doing a fantastic job for Alaska and wants to show her support.

Palin's term also is up next year, but she hasn't announced if she'll seek re-election.

Stapleton says the governor "has never had any intention, not even a thought, of running for the senator's seat."

Palin catapulted onto the national political scene when GOP presidential candidate John McCain picked her as his running mate.
