Sarah Sanders Rakes in Major Fundraising Dollars

Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Thursday that she raised $4.2 million during the second quarter in her bid to be the next governor of Arkansas.

Sanders, who was press secretary during the Trump administration, has raised more than $9 million since announcing her candidacy in January, according to her campaign, which said more than $3 million of that amount has come from Arkansas residents.

“I am thankful for the outpouring of support from all across our state,” Sanders said in a statement. “It’s clear Arkansans want a leader who will defend our freedom and stand up to the radical left, grow our economy and create jobs, and increase access to quality education and opportunity for a brighter, more prosperous future.”

The fundraising haul comes as Sanders, who left the Trump administration in 2019, is running against state Attorney General Leslie Rutledge (R) for the GOP nomination, according to The Associated Press.
