In a move long speculated about, but never fully rooted out, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is looking to ascend into the next echelon of the political realm here in America.
After her stint as the White House Press Secretary, it was clear that Sanders had politicly ambitions still burning within her. Some of that potential was being harnessed by Fox News, where Sarah would appear as a pundit from time to time, but there was always going to be more to her story.
And here it is: She’s in.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a former White House press secretary for President Donald Trump and daughter of two-term Arkansas Gov.-turned-political commentator Mike Huckabee, officially launched her own gubernatorial bid Monday.take our poll - story continues below
Her announcement comes less than a week after her former boss left the White House. It also comes two weeks before the Senate is set to start Trump’s second impeachment trial, where Trump is charged with inciting the insurrection at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6 that left at least five people dead, including a Capitol police officer.
“I’ve been tested under fire, successfully managing one crisis after another, in one of the most difficult, high-pressure jobs in all of government,” Sanders said in a nearly eight-minute video announcing her bid. “At the table with President Trump, confronting our most dangerous adversaries like China and North Korea.”
The full announcement clocked in just under 8 minutes, and is well worth a watch.

Donald Trump Jr. offered assistance to Sanders almost immediately on Twitter – a nod that itself could have a huge impact on Sanders’ chance.
