Jarrad Shelton, a self-proclaimed “lifelong conservative,” is announcing the creation of the “Draft Sarah Huckabee Sanders For Arkansas” PAC to show her the support she would have, should she decide to run for office.

“I am so proud of the job Sarah did in the White House,” he wrote in an email obtained by Politico. “She is a hero my daughters can look up to and is a fantastic representative of the great state of Arkansas. She possesses the strength, dignity, and grace under pressure that is missing from so many leaders today; I want to work to show Sarah that Arkansas and America love her, respect her and want her to continue being involved as a leader in this country.”

As soon as Sanders left the White House, cushioned by exuberant praise from President Donald Trump, rumors started flying about the possibility that she’d run for governor of Arkansas like her father.

Last week, Fox News announced that she’d join the network as a commentator.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.

Sincerely,
TPM Staff
