Arkansas Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders, while not entirely dismissing the possibility of being former President Donald Trump's vice-presidential candidate, has emphasized her dedication to her current role and future re-election bid.

Sanders, during her address at the Arkansas Christian Schools Summit, expressed her deep affinity for Arkansas.

She said, "I love Arkansas and I feel like I just got started here with one year in office."

The governor added, "There's a long list of things I want to make happen," as reported by Fox News.

Trump's Lead Sparks Speculation

As Trump continues to lead the way in the Republican presidential race, having secured victories in both the Iowa caucuses and the New Hampshire primary, there is a growing sense of anticipation surrounding his potential choice for a running mate.

Sanders frequently emerges as a popular name in the realm of speculation.

Sanders' Political Trajectory

As the daughter of Fox News host and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, and having previously served as the White House press secretary under Trump, Sanders holds a significant position within the GOP.

Her current role as the first female governor of Arkansas further enhances her prominence.

Sanders has been vocal in her support for Trump, actively campaigning on his behalf.

Despite rumors suggesting a possible return to national politics alongside Trump, she has reiterated her intention to seek re-election as governor.

A confidant in the governor's circle confirmed to Fox News that Sanders is extremely content with her current responsibilities.

Potential VP Candidates and Trump's Decision

In addition to Sanders, other notable Republicans are being considered as potential running mates for Trump.

These include South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, Sen. Tim Scott of South Carolina, Senator JD Vance of Ohio, and Rep. Elise Stefanik of New York.

Trump, during a recent Fox News town hall, disclosed that he had made his decision regarding his 2024 running mate but did not reveal any specifics.

"I can't tell you that, really, I mean, I know who it's going to be," responded Trump when questioned about his 2024 running mate.

Sanders, commenting on the upcoming election, stated, "I'm very biased in what I hope happens in the election."

She added, "I'm going to do everything within my power to see that Donald Trump gets re-elected, but I look forward to serving as governor for seven years."
