Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, “Gov. DeSantis is exactly right. He has done a great job in Florida. If I am elected governor here in Arkansas, we will not have mask mandates. We will not have mandates on the vaccine. We will not shut down churches, schools, and other large gatherings because we believe in personal freedom and responsibility. That’s one of the key cornerstones, frankly, of our country.”
Sanders’ role model is the governor of one of three states that account for 40% of the new COVID infections in the country. Twenty percent of all new COVID infections nationally are in Florida, but this is the state that Sarah Huckabee Sanders wants to follow.

The personal responsibility argument doesn’t work during a pandemic because viruses don’t differentiate based on political messaging.
Sarah Huckabee Sanders was basically promising not to keep the people of Arkansas safe no matter how bad things get in the state.
