Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced Monday morning that she’s running to be governor of Arkansas, according to the Washington Post:

“Less than a week after Trump himself left the White House under the cloud of a second impeachment, Sanders announced in a nearly eight-minute video Monday that she’s following his suggestion. Sanders, who endeared herself to Trump’s base while combatively — and sometimes misleadingly — sparring with the press, is seen by many as an early favorite in the race to lead a heavily GOP state where Trump’s role in the U.S. Capitol riot may not hurt her appeal.

“’I took on the media, the radical left and their ‘cancel culture,’ and I won. As governor, I will be your voice, and never let them silence you,’ Sanders said in the announcement.”

Arkansas is a very conservative state, and the fact that her father, Mike Huckabee, has also served as governor of the state, gives Sanders a decided advantage.

The announcement from Sanders drew heavy criticism on Twitter, with many users reminding her that all she did as press secretary was repeat one lie after another:
