President Donald Trump has submitted paperwork to appear on the Arkansas 2020 ballot. The paperwork and $25,000 filing fee was delivered to Arkansas Republican Party Chairman, Doyle Webb by Attorney General Leslie Rutledge and the President’s former Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. All forms were then taken to the Secretary of State at the Capital for filing.
The President wasn’t the only person filing to be on the ballot for the highest office in the land. Six Democrats also filed the required paperwork. Cory Booker, Joe Sestak, Marianne Williamson, Steve Bullock, Michael Bennett and Tom Steyer also filed. It will be a crowded field of candidates from the Democrats as 14 have filed for their primary.
Other than the President the only person to file in the Republican primary is Roque De La Fuente. Both parties will hold primaries on March 3rd.
