Sarah Huckabee Sanders raises $12.8M since launch of Arkansas governor campaign
Arkansas Republican gubernatorial candidate Sarah Huckabee Sanders has raised more than $12.8 million since launching her candidacy.
The campaign reported the haul came from 87,000 donors, with more than $1.6 million raised in the fourth quarter of last year.
Almost 11,000 Arkansas residents contributed a total of $4.4 million to Sanders’s campaign, it said. As she heads toward November, the former press secretary for former President Trump has $7 million in cash on hand.
“Our campaign’s record-breaking support across the state is a testament to the leader Arkansans want — one who will invest in our kids’ education while ensuring parental control, create higher-paying jobs, and keep our communities safe,” she said in a statement.
“Clearly this message of opportunity for all is resonating, and together we will make our state the best place to live, work, and raise a family,” she added.
Sanders, daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), has a lot of GOP support behind her campaign with Trump, current Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R) and both senators from the state supporting her.
Sanders is the only Republican up for nomination as two opponents dropped out last year.
