(FreedomBeacon.com)- It is anticipated that Sarah Huckabee Sanders will win the Republican nomination for governor of Arkansas by an overwhelming margin. In the general election, she is expected to compete against Chris Jones, the Democratic candidate.
Sanders, the daughter of former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee and a former press secretary for Trump in the White House, was the favorite to win her primary contest against her Republican opponent Francis “Doc” Washburn. Sanders faced off against Washburn.
Sanders was ahead of Washburn by 82 percent to 17 percent, with just 41 percent of precincts having reported their results.
Sanders has established a new standard for fundraising throughout the campaign and has received early support from Donald Trump, which has helped her to dominate the race.
Sen. John Boozman, who is already serving in the Senate and has the support of President Trump, is also expected to emerge victorious in the primary election for his seat.
Sanders directed most of her campaign attention toward Democrats and vitally important issues for conservative voters, including immigration and gun rights, just as she did in the White House.
In a typical advertisement for his campaign, Sanders stated, “As governor, I will say no to Joe Biden and the radical left’s agenda.”
Sanders would feel like she was going home if she moved back into the governor’s house since she spent her adolescent years there as the daughter of the former governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee. Mike served as governor for more than ten years. In the annals of United States history, Sanders would make history if she were elected governor of the same state that her father had previously governed.
After working for two and a half years as one of Trump’s most trusted and steadfast defenders, Sanders exited the White House in 2019 as a controversial figure on the national stage. Sanders served as one of Trump’s most trusted and unyielding supporters. During the campaign, she presented herself as a barrier against the “radical left” while heaping disdain on the national media. She referred to that tenure as a testament to her unwillingness to back down.
