Sarah Sanders running for Arkansas governor

Sarah Sanders, President Donald Trump's former press secretary, is expected to announce Monday that she is running for governor of Arkansas, a source familiar with the plan told CNN. Griffin, a former member of Congress before he returned home, is a more typically establishment Republican; before running for office, he worked in President George W. Bush's White House, where he was a protege of Bush strategist Karl Rove.

She left the White House on good terms with Mr Trump and supported his failed re-election bid.

The daughter of former Gov. Mike Huckabee had been widely encouraged to run by former President Donald Trump since her White House departure in June of 2019.

Dawsey also tweeted that Huckabee Sanders would make the announcement with a video.

She has been laying the groundwork for a candidacy, speaking to Republican groups around the state. She will challenge Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin (R) and Attorney General Leslie Rutledge (R), both of whom have already said they will run.


The current governor, Republican Asa Hutchinson, is constitutionally barred from seeking a third term.

No Democrats have announced a bid to run for the seat.

During her almost two-year tenure as Trump's chief spokeswoman, daily televised briefings led by the press secretary ended after Sanders repeatedly sparred with reporters who aggressively questioned her about administration policy and the investigation into possible coordination between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation. Her combative relationship with the media echoed the president she served, delighting conservative fans and irritating the reporters with whom she sparred.

But she remains an unknown on numerous state's biggest issues and has said she doesn't want to distract from Hutchinson's agenda.
