Sarah Sanders raises almost $5 million for the Arkansas governor’s campaign in less than three months.
Sarah Sanders, President Trump’s press secretary, has raised nearly $5 million in the few months after announcing her candidacy for governor of Arkansas.
The $4.8 million war chest shattered every campaign’s quarterly fundraising records in the state.
Sanders’ campaign said 34,700 people donated, with out-of-state donors accounting for the bulk of the money. Arkansans contributed more than $1.5 million. Ninety percent of the contributions were for less than $100.
Sanders emphasized in-state contributions in a statement. “I am thankful for the generous support of so many Arkansans — we hosted over 50 events in Arkansas in 60 days and collected over 6,500 donations throughout the state’s 75 counties. “Our message of less government and more education and prosperity is clearly resonating,” she said.
Sanders, who entered the race on Jan. 25, will face Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge in a GOP primary next year. The primary will take place in more than a year, and the general election will take place in November 2022.
