I predict she will be the first of many from the Trump team to run for office but I’m particularly thrilled to see that Sarah Sanders has announced her plan to run for governor of the great state of Arkansas. By doing so, she is following in the footsteps of her father, Mike Huckabee, who served as the state’s 44th governor from 1996 to 2007.
On Monday, Sarah made the announcement on Twitter with the following video from her new sarahforgovernor.com website:

President Trump was quick to throw his support behind Sanders, who served as his White House Press Secretary from 2017 to 2019:
“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. She loves our Military and Veterans—and her home state of Arkansas. Sarah will be a GREAT Governor, and she has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
– President Donald J. Trump
More about Sarah:
Sarah has previously worked in leadership roles for U.S. Senators, Governors, and presidential campaigns. In Arkansas, Sarah was a senior advisor to Senator Tom Cotton in 2014 when he defeated incumbent Democratic Senator Mark Pryor, and was campaign manager for Senator John Boozman in 2010 when he defeated incumbent Democratic Senator Blanche Lincoln. In 2007 and 2008, Sarah helped lead her father, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, to victory in the Iowa Caucuses and seven other states as his national political director. Sarah served in the Department of Education during President George W. Bush‘s administration, and was campaign manager of the ONE campaign, a global non-profit founded by U2’s Bono to take action to end extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa.
Sarah has been recognized in Fortune and TIME Magazine “40 under 40.” She is the author of the New York Times bestseller “Speaking for Myself,” a former Fox News contributor, and serves on the Fulbright board. (sarahforgovernor.com)
Rumor has it, Sarah’s not the only Trump enthusiast considering a run for governor. Mike Lindell (of My Pillow fame) has hinted that he might run in the state of Minnesota.
Who’s next? Only time will tell. But it will be fun to watch these folks come into their own. It will also be fascinating to see if their close ties to Trump will be an asset or detriment. A little of both, I predict.
