When it comes to the race for governor of Arkansas, Sarah Huckabee Sanders is off and running.
The former White House press secretary has raised nearly a stunning $5 million in the first months of her campaign.
Those are pretty impressive numbers.

Sarah Sanders raises nearly $5M in less than three months for Arkansas governor race
Sarah Sanders, press secretary under President Trump, has raised nearly $5 million in the few months since she announced a run for Arkansas governor.
The $4.8 million war chest broke quarterly fundraising records from any campaign in the state.
Sanders’ campaign said 34,700 donors had contributed, and a majority of funds came from out-of-state donors. More than $1.5 million came from Arkansans. Ninety percent of the donations amounted to $100 or less.
In a statement, Sanders highlighted the in-state donations. “I am grateful for the generous support of so many Arkansans — in 60 days we held over 50 events in Arkansas and received more than 6,500 donations across all 75 counties of the state. Our message of limiting government and advancing education and opportunity is clearly resonating,” she said.
Sanders, who entered the race on Jan. 25, is running in a GOP primary next year against Leslie Rutledge, Arkansas attorney general. The primary is still more than a year away, and the general election will be held in November 2022.
She even broke a state record.

With the radical left in control of Washington, governors are our last line of defense. I will be on the front line of the fight for freedom and am so grateful for the outpouring of support! https://t.co/BqCTuvXUF0
