resident Donald Trump’s former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made history last night and became the first woman to be elected Arkansas governor.
Sanders’ proud father Mike Huckabee spoke to Fox News about his daughter’s historic win.
“It is historic — first-time ever for a father-daughter in the same state,” said Huckabee, who served as the 44th governor of Arkansas from 1996 to 2007.
He also spoke about his daughter moving her family into the governor’s mansion in Little Rock, Arkansas, a place where she lived as a young teen when her father was governor.
“It’ll be fun for me to watch that as the grandfather,” he revealed.
When asked what advice he would give the new governor, Huckabee said:
“Love the people — serve them regardless of whether they voted for her.
“In fact, spend more time trying to serve the people who didn’t vote for her.
He added that his daughter will “prove that she’s the governor for everybody.”
“She will bring the heart of a mom and that’s something that will be different and new,” he said.
