As Sarah Huckabee Sanders leaves the White House, she has her sights set on new government housing: the Arkansas governor’s mansion.

According to Politico, Sanders and her allies have started reaching out to operatives and donors in the state. President Donald Trump floated the possibility of her 2022 candidacy in his tweet bidding her adieu from the press secretary job.

Sanders would be following in the footsteps of her father, Mike, who served as governor from 1996 to 2007.

She is set to leave her post at the end of the month.

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.
