Republican Arkansas Governor and former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is set to endorse her former boss Donald Trump at a rally Wednesday night, her office confirmed. 

Sanders will appear with Trump on stage at his rally near Miami on Wednesday, the same night the third Republican presidential debate will take place just right down the road from Trump’s event, NBC News reported. The Arkansas governor’s endorsement comes as Trump dominates the GOP field in the polls and is ahead of President Joe Biden in the Real Clear Politics average of national polling. 

“It’s not a question between right versus left anymore,” Sanders said in a statement. “It’s normal versus crazy, and President Biden and the left are doubling down on crazy. The time has come to return to the normal policies of the Trump era which created a safer, stronger, and more prosperous America, and that’s why I am proud to endorse Donald Trump for President.”

Sanders’ statement echoed her response to Biden’s most recent State of the Union Address, where she drew a contrast between the Republicans’ and Democrats’ visions for the future of America.

“In the radical Left’s America, Washington taxes you and lights your hard-earned money on fire. But you get crushed with high gas prices, empty grocery shelves, and our children are taught to hate one another on account of their race, but not to love one another or our great country,” she said in the GOP’s televised response to Biden’s SOTU. “The dividing line in America is no longer between Right or Left. The choice is between normal and crazy.”

The former press secretary for Trump had reportedly frustrated the Trump campaign by withholding her endorsement for this long as he faces a slew of Republican opponents in the GOP primary. The former president responded to Sanders’ pending endorsement, calling it an “honor.” 

“We had great success in the White House and it’s an honor to have Sarah’s endorsement,” Trump said in a statement. “I look forward to having her at the big rally in Hialeah this Wednesday.”

With Sanders’ endorsement, Trump has now secured the backing of five Republican governors, including Alaska Gov. Mike Dunleavy, West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster, and South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem. The former president has also won the endorsements of nearly 80 House Republicans and 11 GOP senators.


Sanders’ endorsement of Trump comes after the former president’s Republican rival, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, was endorsed by Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds on Monday, securing his biggest endorsement of the 2024 primary. Reynolds backed DeSantis after initially saying she would stay neutral before the Iowa caucuses, scheduled for January 15, 2024, angering Trump who called her “disloyal” and said that her DeSantis endorsement “will be the end of her political career.” 

Trump reportedly angered the Republican National Committee by scheduling his Miami rally on the same night and in the same city as the third Republican debate, which will be hosted by NBC. The former president and GOP frontrunner has skipped each of the Republican presidential debates, arguing that his huge lead in the polls renders them meaningless.
