There will be a new occupant of the governor’s mansion in Little Rock. Sarah Huckabee Sanders has ousted Democrat Chris Jones in her bid to become the next governor of Arkansas.
“Congratulation, Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” Senator Tom Cotton tweeted on Tuesday night.
“I’m grateful to call you a friend and now our governor-elect. Arkansans will be safer and more prosperous with your conservative leadership.”
Sarah Huckabee Sanders is best known to voters around the country as the first White House Press Secretary during the administration of former President Donald Trump. However, she was a household name in Arkansas long before she ventured off to Capitol Hill. As her father served as governor, Sanders rose through the ranks of the state’s political scene. Now, she will succeed Asa Hutchinson as the state’s next governor.
Sanders is not only the next governor of Arkansas, but she is also the first woman to hold the position. In this position, she claims that she’ll be a public official who is on the “front line” of important issues.
“In fact, your governor must be on the front line.”
