Sarah Huckabee Sanders will report over $12.8 million total raised from more than 87,000 donors in less than one year since announcing her candidacy, including over $1.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, campaign officials announced on Tuesday.
In Arkansas, Sanders has raised $4.4 million from nearly 11,000 Arkansans. She reports over $7 million cash on hand heading into election year.
“Our campaign’s record-breaking support across the state is a testament to the leader Arkansans want – one who will invest in our kids’ education while ensuring parental control, create higher paying jobs, and keep our communities safe,” Sanders said. “Clearly this message of opportunity for all is resonating, and together we will make our state the best place to live, work, and raise a family.”
Sanders has been officially endorsed by current Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, Arkansas Senators John Boozman and Tom Cotton, and Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge. Her opponents include Republican candidate Bill Gates, Democrats Supha Xayprasith-Mays, Anthony Bland, Chris Jones and James Russell, and Libertarian Ricky Dale Harrington Jr.
