Ever since Sarah Sanders left her position with in the White House, there’s been speculation that she may run for office, more specifically governor of Arkansas. And based on an interview Sanders did with The New York Times, she’s all but confirming those rumors to be true.
“There are two types of people who run for office,” she told the Times. “People that are called and people that just want to be a senator or governor. I feel like I’ve been called.”
“It’s the role I’ve been pushed into,” she continued. “I wouldn’t want to do that if I wasn’t the right person to fit what the state needed at that time.”
The governor’s seat isn’t up until 2023, so it will likely be a year or two before Sanders officially jumps in the race, but it definitely sounds like that’s where her head is at. If she wins, she would become the first female governor of the state and fill a role her father held from 1996 – 2007.
