Fox News has axed former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders from its contributors’ lineup over her impending run for governor of Arkansas, a network spokesperson confirmed to The Daily Beast late Sunday. Sanders, 38, who joined Fox as a paid contributor in September, served as former President Donald Trump’s press secretary from 2017 to 2019 and in that time became notorious for lying repeatedly to the media—sometimes by her own admission—during her increasingly sparing briefings. Her father, Mike Huckabee, served as Arkansas’ governor from 1996 to 2007. Two other Republican candidates, Lt. Gov. Tim Griffin and Attorney General Leslie Rutledge, have announced 2022 runs already. Sanders plans to announce her bid Monday.
