Sanders for Arkansas Governor

Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has announced her candidacy for the post of Arkansas State Governor in 2022. In an almost eight-minute announcement video released in January, Sanders said: “With the radical left now in control of Washington, your governor is your last line of defense. In fact, your governor must be on the front line. So today I announce my candidacy for Governor of Arkansas. “We’ve seen violence in our streets, at a congressional baseball practice and at our Capitol. This is not who we are as Americans. To remain free, we must have law and order.” The former White House official, who is the daughter of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, faces a primary field of political big weights, including Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Carol Rutledge and Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin, a George W. Bush administration alum, The Hill news website reported.

Incumbent Governor Asa Hutchinson’s nephew, state Senator Jim Hendron, is also said to be mulling a run. Hutchinson cannot run in the 2022 race due to term limits. Former President Donald Trump has already endorsed Sanders in January. “Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a warrior who will always fight for the people of Arkansas and do what is right, not what is politically correct. Sarah is strong on borders, tough on crime, and fully supports the Second Amendment and our great law enforcement officers,” CNN quoted Trump as saying in a statement.
