He's a Republican, too.

We’re all familiar with the White House Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Whether you love her or hate her, you have to admit she’s pretty good at lying ... errrr ... bending the truth.

She accepted her position in the White House in July 2017, after former press secretary Sean Spicer jumped ship and ever since then we have the “pleasure” of listening to her cover for Trump.

But politics aside, she’s also a mother and a wife. We’re curious about the man behind the woman, and what her family life is like. Who is Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ husband? Here are 7 things to know about Bryan Sanders.

Sanders was born and raised in Mission Woods, Kansas, moving to Main in 2002 to attend Colby College. He received a degree in campaign media.

2. He’s worked on multiple political campaigns.

He began his political career as the press assistant to Sam Brownback, who is now the governor of Kansas. He also was an aide when Brownback decided to run for president but switched to Huckabee’s campaign after Brownback dropped out.

He also managed the primary and general election campaigns for Robert Bentley, the former Alabama Governor, and was the media consultant for Ted Yoho, a Florida Congressman.

3. They met during her father’s 2008 campaign.

When Mike Huckabee ran for president in 2008, Sarah Huckabee was the campaign field director and hired Sanders as a media consultant. In an interview with The Hill in 2010 Sarah joked, “They [Sanders and his colleague] were both kind of cute, [so I said,] ‘Well, we might be able to work something out’ — kidding a little bit there.”

4. They married 2 years later.

After the campaign ended and Huckabee did not end up as president, Sanders and Huckabee continued dating, got engaged in 2009, and married in 2010 in the Virgin Islands.

5. The couple has three children.

They have two sons and a daughter. Scarlett was born in 2012, William was born in 2013, and George was born in 2015. And apparently, her wild and chaotic home is what prepped her for her job in the White House. Who knew?

6. He and Sarah founded a consulting firm.

In his career, Sanders has provided consulting work to multiple candidates, including Texas Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick, Arkansas Congressman French Hill, Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, Arizona Congressman Trent Franks, and Mississippi State Treasurer Lynn Fitch.

He and Sarah founded Second Street Strategies in 2016, a consulting firm that, according to their website, aims to provide “general consulting services, including strategy, research, polling, message development, and advertising production and placement for candidates, independent expenditure committees, businesses, and non-profits.”

But now that she works in the White House, the firm is on hold indefinitely.

7. He’s very supportive of her.

Whether you agree with her politics or not, Sanders is just being a supportive husband, and that’s all any woman ever wants, right?

When she decided to join the Trump campaign in 2016, she was really just looking for the best option to beat Hillary Clinton. According to Bryan Sanders, “Sarah is from Arkansas, you have to remember. And she’s grown up her whole life with the Clintons. That was the driving force. That we have to do everything in our power to defeat Hillary Clinton.”

He also said that Sarah saw “similarities” between her father and Trump: "Her dad and Trump were saying a lot of the same things. They were talking about how Washington needs a big change. They were both running very anti-establishment campaigns."

Trump’s character flaws didn’t throw her off, though; she looked past who he is as a person because she liked his views on religious liberty, abortion, and appointing Supreme Court justices.
