Arkansas lawmakers congratulate Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders on her inauguration



Little Rock, Arkansas – Legislators from all over the Natural State sent their greetings as Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders took the oath of office and started her term as the head of Arkansas.

As the first woman to hold the office of governor in Arkansas and the nation’s youngest governor, Sanders is making history.

The members of the Arkansas delegation to the US House were quick to highlight the conservative ideals that the daughter of former Republican Gov. Mike Huckabee and press secretary to former President Donald Trump brings to the position.

In a statement, Rep. Rick Crawford congratulated Sanders and said he was looking forward to working with her to raise the standard of living for Arkansans. Additionally, he expressed gratitude to outgoing governor Asa Hutchinson for his eight years of service in that capacity.

“Congratulations to Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders on being sworn into office today as the 47th governor of Arkansas and making history as the first female governor of the Natural State. I look forward to seeing her lead and working with her on our shared goals, which include improving the quality of life for Arkansans and ensuring that our state is an attractive place for our children and grandchildren to raise their families. She has big shoes to fill, as Governor Asa Hutchinson worked hard to strengthen our great state over the past 8 years.”

Rep. French Hill said in a statement that he was eager to see what Sanders would do to solve the state’s budget, reduce taxes, and modernize the educational system. He added that a “new generation of leadership” is emerging in Arkansas.

“I congratulate Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders on being sworn in today as the 47th Governor of Arkansas. I look forward to seeing her lead the Natural State, including addressing budget reform and lowering income taxes, reforming Arkansas’ education system, and implementing new public safety measures. I thank former Governor Asa Hutchinson for all the work he did for Arkansans over the past eight years and I am delighted that Arkansas has a new generation of leadership and that Sanders is making history as our state’s first female governor.”

The 3rd Congressional District representative for the state, Rep. Steve Womack, declared that Sanders would “make the Natural State proud” and that he had “total faith” in her ability to promote the state.

“Congratulations to Governor Sarah Huckabee Sanders as she leads Arkansas. She will make the Natural State proud. I have absolute confidence in her ability to move Arkansas forward. Her vision and commitment to our shared values will serve her well as she embarks on this new journey.
