Name: Sarah Elizabeth Huckabee
Born: August 13, 1982
Occupation: Political aide and Press Secretary
Sarah Huckabee Sanders was born in Hope, Arkansas on August 13, 1982. She is the daughter of Mike Huckabee, the former Republican Governor of Arkansas, and Janet Huckabee. She has two siblings: John Mark and David Huckabee.
Sarah attended Little Rock Central High School. Upon graduation, she studied at Ouachita Baptist University and graduated with a liberal arts degree in 2004.
She has been married to Bryan Chatfield Sanders, a Republican political consultant and entrepreneur, since May 2010. They have three children: George, Huck and Scarlett. The family presently resides in Arlington, Virginia.
Sarah first got involved in politics when she was the tender age of 10. She assisted her father’s initial run for the Arkansas governorship by stuffing envelopes, putting up election signs and knocking on doors. Sarah also learned a lot from various political consultants, who studied and analyzed polling results.
This gave her the politics bug. She served as a field coordinator for Governor Huckabee’s 2002 re-election campaign. She later served as a regional liaison for congressional affairs at the U.S. Department of Education under former President George W. Bush. In 2004, she also worked as a field coordinator for the president’s 2004 re-election bid in Ohio.
Alongside her husband, Sarah is a founding partner of Second Street Strategies, a general consulting services provider. She continued to lend her political expertise to a wide array of campaigns, including for Senator John Boozman in 2010, Governor Tim Pawlenty in 2012 and Donald Trump in 2016.
Soon after President Trump’s victory, Sarah was appointed Deputy White House Press Secretary. Following the resignation of Sean Spicer, Sarah became the third woman in U.S. history to serve as the White House Press Secretary. Because of this, Sarah has been regularly mocked by “Saturday Night Live.”
We estimate that Sarah Huckabee Sanders’s net worth is $9 million (2017).
So how much is $9 million really?
$9 million can pay for the annual salary of most of the White House cabinet. $9 million can also cover a fraction of the costs of the typical U.S. presidential campaign.
