On Sunday, Sarah Huckabee Sanders continued to fan speculation that she will use her former perch as White House press secretary to jump-start an Arkansas gubernatorial campaign.
While speaking at the conservative group Turning Point USA’s Student Action Summit, Sanders was asked if she had set her sights on the governor’s office.
“I’m very seriously looking at it right now,” Sanders said. “My focus is on making sure we get the president re-elected first in 2020, and we’ll have plenty of time to focus on 2022 after that.” The Arkansas gubernatorial election will take place in 2022, when current governor Asa Hutchinson’s second term expires. Arkansas law prohibits governors from serving more than two terms after elections.
