Republican Sarah Huckabee Sanders is projected by Fox News to win Arkansas’ governor’s race, defeating Democrat candidate Chris Jones and becoming the state’s first female governor.
Sanders will replace Gov. Asa Hutchinson (R).
Most recently, Sanders served as former President Donald Trump’s White House Press Secretary from 2017 to 2019.
In addition to making history as the state’s first female chief executive, Sanders will also be a legacy governor. Sander’s father, Mike Huckabee, served in the Arkansas’ Governor’s Mansion from 1996 to 2007.
