IN IOWA: Sarah Huckabee Sanders regales the crowd with tales from Trump days.

Here you go. Video of Sarah Huckabee Sanders joining an Iowa Republican rally Saturday, two days before voting begins for Arkansas governor. Main takeaway: She worked for Donald Trump.


Her remarks echoed her Arkansas campaign theme, which is not particularly relevant in a race for Arkansas state office, but perhaps somewhat fitting as she campaigned in support of Chuck Grassley and Co.

Former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders made a trip from Arkansas, where she is running for governor, encouraging Republicans to get out to vote — and spoke on the importance of the races in Iowa.

“We need to make sure that we have conservative republicans in the house and the senate and making sure that the radical left doesn’t take over everything at our country,” Sanders said.

Back home her party is trying to take over everything from school boards on up. And largely succeeding.


This quote is from coverage of the Republican event sponsored by Sen.Joni Ernst.

“She is absolutely no stranger to Iowa folks, so please give a warm welcome for Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” said Senator Joni Ernst, (R) from Red Oak.

She is a stranger to all but a carefully controlled audience in Arkansas. No news reporter questions are welcome.


A WHO reporter did manage to give her a question in Iowa:

Sanders said after her speech at the roast that she was here to support her friend Sen. Ernst, but also remind people that the midterm election is closing in and it’s important to vote. Sander was asked if her former boss, Donald Trump, is running for president again and if she would support him.

“That’s a question you’ll have to ask the president. That is not something I forgot, predicting his moves, a long time ago. Every time I tried, I seemed to mess up every once in a while,” said Sanders. “So, I will let him speak for his self, that’s a deeply personal decision. But what I can tell you is that the country would be in much better shape if he was in the White House instead of Joe Biden.”

Where was Democrat Chris Jones, the obvious choice for governor? Not in Iowa.

Social media silence yesterday from the Sanders campaign. They posted a round of photos from past campaign events (invitation-only gatherings) on Facebook at 9 a.m. No mention of the run to Iowa.
