The Gubernatorial Candidates of Arkansas

Sarah’s Political Career
Sarah Huckabee Sanders served as President Donald Trump’s press secretary from 2017 to 2019 and launched her gubernatorial mission last January. Sanders broke a state-raising money record, getting $4.8 million for her campaign in the primary quarter of her nomination.
Sanders promoted a recognizable “the rule of law” manner of speaking as she reported her run, referring to keep going year’s assault on the United States Capitol building by a crowd of Trump followers. Nonetheless, she didn’t specify Trump’s part in propelling the uproars. President Donald Trump was impeached for that reason.
Sarah said in her announcement video,” 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.”
She continued,” Everything we love about America is at stake, and with the radical left now in control of Washington, your governor is your last line of defense.
“Everything we love about America is at stake, and with the radical left now in control of Washington, your governor is your last line of defense,” Sanders said. “In fact, your governor must be on the front line. So today, I announced my candidacy for governor of Arkansas and ask for your prayers and support.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders worked for Fox News in 2019 as an on-air contributor and has now been elected as Arkansas’ 47th governor.
