​Former President Donald Trump threw his support to Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the administration’s former White House press secretary who is making a run for governor in her home state of Arkansas.

“Sarah is strong on Borders, tough on Crime, and fully supports the Second Amendment and our great law enforcement officers,” Trump said in a statement to Fox News.

“She loves our Military and Veterans — and her home state of Arkansas,” he said. “Sarah will be a GREAT Governor, and she has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”

Sanders, who left the White House in 2019, announced on Monday she would run for governor in Arkansas, a job her father, Mike Huckabee, held from 1997 to 2006.

She released a video announcing her run and proclaiming herself a law-and-order candidate.

“America is great because we are free, but today, our freedom and the rule of law are under attack,” she said.

Sanders will run in 2022 to replace incumbent Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who is barred from seeking another re-election because of term limits.
