“Sarah Huckabee Sanders is running for governor of Arkansas in the 2022 election,” reported Breitbart News. It has been confirmed by multiple news outlets and Sanders herself through an announcement video.

Griffin has raised “$1,817,626.21 since March 3, 2020 and he has $1,746,071.23 cash on hand.” Rutledge has raised “$1,032,855.19 in just the first two quarters” since announcing her bid. Sanders just announced and does not have to report until the next cycle.
