Sarah Sanders is Apparently Extremely Serious About Running For Arkansas Governor
Outgoing White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders is, in fact, considering a run for governor of Arkansas following President Donald Trump’s endorsement of a potential run, per a new report.
Politico reported that Sanders and her associates have begun making calls to various donors and political figures in Arkansas, moves indicating she is exploring a run for the governor’s seat.
Current Arkansas Gov. Asa Hutchinson, also a Republican, is term-limited and will leave office in 2022, leaving Sanders plenty of time to decide on a run.
Trump has publicly encouraged Sanders to run for the office on multiple occasions.
….She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 13, 2019
“I hope she decides to run for governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic,” Trump said.
The president also teased a potential run for Sanders when he brought her onstage for his rally in Orlando Tuesday night.
“I have a feeling she’s going to be running for a certain gubernatorial position,” the president said at his re-election launch rally.
