Axios reported that Sanders, who left the White House on Friday, plans to move back to her native Arkansas and relax for the month of July with her family before she begins working on her book and likely hitting the speaking circuit.

The outlet added that Sanders is reportedly mulling a 2022 run for Arkansas governor.


Trump suggested Sanders could run for the governorship when he announced her resignation last month. Sanders is reportedly seriously considering campaigning for the position, currently held by Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) who must exit the office due to term limits in 2022.

In the meantime, Sanders will help with Trump’s 2020 reelection campaign, according to Axios.

Sanders tweeted Friday that it had been “the honor and privilege of a lifetime” to work with Trump, writing that she was leaving the White House “with my head held high.”

The Hill has reached out to Sanders for comment.

Sanders served as press secretary for nearly two years, frequently clashing with reporters and receiving criticism for the lack of press briefings under her tenure.
