Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Principles & Values

 

 


You bet I'm nationalizing my governor's race

[On the Arkansas governorship]: "I keep hearing, 'Oh there's the Sarah Sanders, she's nationalizing the race.' And my answer to those people, you bet I am. Because if you are not, you are missing what is happening in our country," Sanders said. "We have people in Washington, in leadership, the radical left that are not OK just changing policy. They want to fundamentally change who we are as a country and we cannot sit back and do nothing and allow that to happen."

Sanders is Christian, conservative, a proud Arkansan

[Endorsement from the former Vice President]: "Sarah Huckabee Sanders is a Christian, a conservative, and a proud Arkansan who will fight for the people of Arkansas, stand with law enforcement, promote lower taxes, champion school choice, and more," Mike Pence said. "Sarah will be a great Governor and has my full support," he added.

I took on media, radical left and cancel culture

On her role in the Trump administration: "I took on the media, the radical left and their cancel culture, and I won," the former press secretary said. "As governor, I will be your voice and never let them silence you."

Everything we love about America is at stake

Announcement of candidacy: "Everything we love about America is at stake, and with the radical left now in control of Washington, your governor is your last line of defense," Sanders said. "In fact, your governor must be on the front line. So today, I announce my candidacy for governor of Arkansas and ask for your prayers and your support."

I'm a Christian, a wife, a mom, and a proud Arkansan

I'm a Christian, a wife, a mom, a proud Arkansan. My opponents will do everything in their power to destroy me, but I will not apologize for who I am or who I'm fighting for. I'm fighting for you. I will not retreat. I will not surrender. And I will not bow down to the radical left. Not now, not ever.

Trump wasn't perfect; the only perfect role model is Jesus

I was one of the first Trump surrogates to go on air after the Access Hollywood controversy. It was a low point in the campaign, and Republican leaders were abandoning him en masse. When asked on MSNBC at the debate if the president is a good role model for my kids, I said that as a person of faith, I believe there can be only one perfect role model--Jesus.

Like every other human being on the planet, I had no illusion that Mr. Trump was a perfect person--far from it--but in a race against Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump was clearly the better choice. Even when the polls showed him down and the media and political establishment--including many Republican leaders-counted him out, I believed Trump would win. I believed his message was resonating with states like PA and MI that hadn't gone Republican in a long time. I also believed, having grown up in the Clinton's shadows in Arkansas--that a Hilary Clinton presidency might be a disaster this country may never recover from.

Asked to leave restaurant because she worked for Trump

I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA, to leave because I work for @Potus, and I politely left. The Red Hen controversy raged on. I opened the press briefing that day by addressing the controversy: "Good afternoon. Many by now have heard that I was asked to leave a restaurant this weekend where I attempted to have dinner with my family. My husband and I politely left and went home. I was asked to leave because I work for President Trump."

We are allowed to disagree, but we should be able to do so freely and without fear of harm. A member of Congress called for people to "push back' and make clear to those serving their country in this administration that they are not welcome anywhere, anytime, for anything.

Healthy ideas and political philosophy is important, but the calls for harassment and push for any Trump supporter to avoid the public is unacceptable. America is a great country, and our ability to find solutions despite those disagreements is what makes us unique.
