Former White House Press Secretary and native Arkansan Sarah Huckabee Sanders has raised over $9 million in her bid for Arkansas governor, smashing the state record, her campaign announced Thursday.

“I am thankful for the outpouring of support from all across our state,”  Sanders said. “It’s clear Arkansans want a leader who will defend our freedom and stand up to the radical left, grow our economy and create jobs, and increase access to quality education and opportunity for a brighter, more prosperous future.”

Sanders will report collecting $4.2 million in the second quarter, including more than $1.5 million from Arkansans, increasing her campaign pool to $9.1 million from over 67,000 donors.

Sanders served as former President Trump’s White House Press Secretary before being succeeded by Kayleigh McEnany. She is the daughter of former Arkansas Republican governor and former Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee.
