April 15, 2021

Shatters Quarterly Fundraising Record in Arkansas

Little Rock, AR – Sarah Huckabee Sanders will report raising over $4.8 million in the two months since announcing her candidacy on January 25th – including more than $1.5 million from Arkansans – shattering the record for most money ever raised in a quarter by any campaign in state history.

“I am grateful for the generous support of so many Arkansans – in 60 days we held over 50 events in Arkansas and received more than 6,500 donations across all 75 counties of the state. Our message of limiting government and advancing education and opportunity is clearly resonating,” said Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

Overall, the campaign had over 34,700 donors at an average contribution amount of under $97 per donation in the first quarter. 90% of the campaign’s donations were $100 or less.

“With the radical left in control of Washington, our governors are our last line of defense,” Sanders said. “I will be on the front line of the fight for freedom and am encouraged to have so many friends across our state and country standing with us.”

Sarah Huckabee Sanders Announces Campaign for Governor of Arkansas

January 25, 2021

Outlines vision to defend our freedom and lead with heart

Little Rock, AR — Sarah Huckabee Sanders today announced her candidacy for Governor of Arkansas. In a video, Sanders noted the important role our governor will have defending Arkansans with the radical left now in control of Washington, and outlined her vision for increasing freedom, security and prosperity in our state. Included here are some key excerpts, or you can click here to watch the announcement video.

Defending Arkansans
“Everything we love about America is at stake – and with the radical left now in control of Washington – your governor is your last line of defense. In fact, your governor must be on the frontline…Our state needs a leader with the courage to do what’s right – not what’s politically correct or convenient…So today, I announce my candidacy for governor of Arkansas, and ask for your prayers and support.”

Freedom and Civility
“I was the first White House press secretary to require Secret Service protection because of a credible violent threat against me. We’ve seen violence in our streets, at a Congressional baseball practice, and our Capitol. This is not who we are as Americans. To remain free, we must have law and order and resolve our differences peacefully. The radical left’s ‘solution’ is to impose government control and censorship from the top down. But their socialism and cancel culture will not heal America – it will only further divide and destroy us…I will defend your right to be free of socialism and tyranny, your second amendment right to keep your family safe, and your freedom of speech and religious liberty.”

A New Generation of Leadership
“The real test of a leader is not the way you handle the issues you know are coming – it’s rising to the moment in a crisis you can never plan for. I have been tested under fire, successfully managing one crisis after another in one of the most difficult, high-pressure jobs in all of government… enduring relentless attacks, but getting the job done…As your governor, I will not be intimidated by the serious challenges we face. I will courageously lead.”

“I will stand with our brave law enforcement officers…prohibit sanctuary cities…and fight back against the radical environmental policies like the Green New Deal that threaten to destroy so many jobs. I will take on the bureaucracy, reduce the cost and size of government, and make it accountable to you. I will lower the state income tax to reward hard work, allow our businesses to compete, grow, and prosper, and create more good jobs. I will champion good schools and good teachers, but also offer more choices to parents of kids in failing schools. Every child must have the opportunity of a quality education – and no child should ever be trapped in a life of poverty and despair.”

“We will succeed, but only if we the hold the line against the attacks on our freedom and push forward with fresh ideas under a new generation of leadership… As governor, I will defend our freedom and lead with heart…”
