Sarah Huckabee Sanders works as the White House deputy press secretary under Press Secretary Sean Spicer. Sanders was launched this week to appear on several Sunday news shows in an effort to explain President Donald Trump‘s blockbuster claim that he was wiretapped by his political predecessor, President Barack Obama.

Sanders, 34, is the daughter of Mike Huckabee, the political pundit and former Arkansas governor who suspended his own presidential campaign on February 1, 2016, after receiving 1.8% of the votes in the Iowa caucuses. Sanders, who worked on several of her father’s campaigns as a field coordinator, was dispatched by the WH to speak about Trump’s incendiary Twitter claims that Barack Obama wiretapped Trump Tower during the presidential campaign. The President is yet to produce any hard evidence to support his accusations.

In an interview with ABC News, This Week, Sanders implied that Trump was simply tweeting information he read on the internet. “President Trump is the one that came up with this idea and just threw it out there,” she said. “There are multiple news outlets that have reported this.”

Huckabee Sanders is married to Bryan Chatfield Sanders, a media consultant. The couple got married on May 25, 2010 at Nazareth Lutheran Church at Cruz Bay on the island of St. John in the U.S. Virgin Islands. Sarah and Bryan reside in Arlington, Virginia.

The couple has three children together. Sanders’s mother is Janet Huckabee. She has two brothers, David Huckabee and John Mark Huckabee. David Huckabee is a mortgage broker who worked on his father’s 2008 presidential campaign.

Sanders worked as national political director for her father’s 2008 presidential campaign. Huckabee pulled out of that race on March 4th, 2008.

Sanders’s work experience includes serving as a regional liaison for congressional affairs at the Department of Education and working as field coordinator for President Bush’s re-election campaign in Ohio in 2004.
