Sarah Sanders Raises Whopping $11 million For Arkansas Governor Bid
Sarah Huckabee Sanders

GOP Arkansas and Trump administration alumna Sarah Huckabee announced Thursday that she’s has raised $11 million for her gubernatorial bid since launching her campaign in January.

Sarah’s campaign said in a statement that it had raised more than $2.1 million dollars in the 3rd  quarter of 2021 and finished Sept. with more than $7 million in the bank. Of the $11 million raised so far, $3.7 million has come from Arkansans.

I am grateful for the overwhelming support I have received from every county in our state and every state in our nation,” Sarah Sanders said in her statement. “Now more than ever, Arkansas needs a real leader who will take our state to the top with bold reforms, lower taxes, and higher-paying jobs to unleash our full potential.

Sarah is the early favorite to replace term-limited Governor Asa Hutchinson (Republican). Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge is her only republican primary rival.

Sarah Sanders is running with Donald Trump’s endorsement and will likely tap into a deep well of support from his base. She was seen as a loyal supporter of Trump during her time in the White House, often sparring with journalists from the podium of James S. Brady Press Briefing Room while defending the administration.

Though Arkansas has a long history of electing Democratic governors, the state has lurched to the right in recent years, making the victor in the Republican primary the overwhelming favorite to win next year’s 2022 general election.

Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders has raised $2.1 million over the past three months in her bid to be Arkansas' next governor, her campaign announced Thursday.

Sanders's campaign said the latest contributions brought her total fundraising haul since she announced she was running in January to more than $11 million, which is the most that have been raised for an Arkansas governor's race in the state. Sarah Sanders has more than $7 million cash on hand, her campaign said.

Sarah Sanders is running against Attorney General Leslie Rutledge for the Republican nomination for governor. AG Rutledge has not yet announced her fundraising figures for the quarter. AG Rutledge in July reported that her campaign had raised $1.4 million since announcing her candidacy last year. The two are running to succeed Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who can't run for reelection because he's reached his term limit.

Sanders, who last month launched her first television advertisement and a statewide tour, has been campaigning primarily on national issues such as border control and the country's withdrawal from Afghanistan. All but $3.7 million of the money her campaign has raised has come from out of state.

Chris Jones, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor, raised $384,366 during the quarter and spent $455,547, his campaign said. Jones had $468,299 cash on hand and has raised more than $1 million since announcing his candidacy in June.

President Trump explains more about his new social media site "Truth Social" | Latest Statement on TMTG

  Donald J. Trump News Latest Statement on TMTG by the 45th President Donald J. Trump Last week, I announced the creation of a major new company that will challenge the dominance of the Big Tech giants and Big Media bosses. Today I want to explain more about what I am doing and why. For me, this endeavor is about much more than politics. This is about saving our country. America has always been a nation of smart, spirited, and independent people who take pride in thinking for themselves. We admire those who aren’t afraid to speak their minds, or go against the tide. Yet suddenly, we find ourselves being censored and dictated to by a small group of self-righteous scolds and self-appointed arbiters of what everyone else is allowed to think, say, share, and do. Nowhere is this censorship more dangerous and brazen than on social media, the public square of our times. We have seen renowned medical doctors being banned from platforms for contradicting “health authorities” or questioning the
