Today is a pretty epic day for the Huckabee family.  Sarah Huckabee Sanders, youngest of our 3 children, becomes the 47th Governor of Arkansas today at noon in a swearing in ceremony on the steps of the Arkansas State Capitol.  There is no way to fully express the range of emotions I’m personally feeling watching her enter her service in an office that I had the privilege of working in for just short of 11 years.  Her move with her family to the Arkansas Governor's Mansion will mark a return to the home in which she spent a lot of her adolescent years learning places to hide.  Her 3 children will try the same stunts, no doubt, but they don’t have a chance!  She already knows where all the great hiding places are!  

Her becoming Governor is historic in that it marks the first time in American history that a daughter has followed her father in a Governor’s Office.  She is the first woman to be elected Governor in our state.  But I believe the real history is yet to be written as she will bring vision, bold ideas, and a great team of quality people to the office.  Above all, it’s my fervent prayer that she takes one piece of advice from her Dad:  “Never forget who your boss is!”  It’s not the donors who helped get you there.  It’s not the lobbyists, the legislators, the staff, or the press (certainly not!).  It’s the citizens of the state who maybe didn’t vote for you, couldn’t afford to contribute to your campaign, or have a thing they can do for you.  No matter how they dress, what they do for a living, where they live, or how much education they have or don’t have, THEY are your bosses.  Serve them.  Love them.  Pray for them daily.”

She enters with a servant’s heart and the heart of a Mom.  I’m proud of all 3 of my children, but today, it’s her special day to celebrate with her incredible husband Bryan, their 3 children Scarlett, Huck, and George, and thousands of friends from across the nation.  And her parents celebrate with her!

    Loved her when she was press secretary for Pres. Trump and know that she will do a fantastic job for the people of Arkansas. Doubt that her politics will stop there. She's got what it takes to do a great job on the Federal leval and knows what it's about. Congratulations, Sarah and it will be a joy to watch your journey!

    Had to smile at the last story about your daughter. I can feel the pride just oozing out of the letter. And you have every reason to be proud. She is a wonderful example of what an American and a politician should stand for! Congratulations, Sarah! We are very excited to see what you do. Makes me wish I lived in your state!

    I can't help but praise Sarah for all the good things she did during her tenure with Trump and now she is shining as Governor of Arkansas. Her signing into law the rejection of CRT and making it illegal to teach CRT in Arkansas is fantastic. She went further by making it required to teach the truth about American History and protecting parental rights. You have every right to be proud of her and I am sure she will make you even more proud during her tenure as Governor of Arkansas.
