LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) — Former White House press secretary Sarah Sanders has raised $2.1 million over the past three months in her bid for Arkansas governor. Sanders’ campaign on Thursday said the latest contributions brought her total fundraising since she announced her bid in January to $11 million.
Sanders has $7 million cash on hand. Sanders is running against Attorney General Leslie Rutledge for next year’s GOP primary for governor. The two are running to succeed Republican Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who is barred by term limits from seeking reelection. Democrat Chris Jones reported raising more than $384,000 during the quarter.
