Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders has officially endorsed Donald Trump.
Sanders said, “The time has come to return to the normal policies of the Trump era which created a safer, stronger, and more prosperous America, and that’s why I am proud to endorse Donald Trump for President.”
Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Monday endorsed her former boss Donald Trump for president.
Sanders will join the 2024 Republican front-runner at his rally in Hialeah, Florida, on Wednesday as Trump skips the third GOP presidential primary debate, which is being held the same night in Miami.
“It’s not a question between right versus left anymore. It’s normal versus crazy, and President Biden and the left are doubling down on crazy. The time has come to return to the normal policies of the Trump era which created a safer, stronger, and more prosperous America, and that’s why I am proud to endorse Donald Trump for President,” Sanders said in a statement to CNN.
The endorsement is not entirely surprising, as Sanders served as Trump’s White House press secretary and has been a staunch ally of the former president since he left office. But Sanders had declined to weigh in on the 2024 race until this point, even after Trump called her eight months ago asking for her endorsement, a source familiar with the call told CNN in March. Trump denied asking for Sanders’ endorsement in a Truth Social post at the time.
She is expected to endorse him at his rally in Florida.
Sanders is expected to officially make the endorsement Wednesday at a Trump rally in Hialeah, Florida.
