Who is Bryan Chatfield Sanders?
Bryan Sanders is a Republican Party political and media consultant, who is perhaps best known for being the husband of Sarah Sanders, a political adviser, campaign manager and a former White House press secretary of the 45th President of the United States Donald Trump.
Early Life and Childhood
Bryan was born in 1982 in Mission Woods, Kansas, and is of American nationality and white ethnicity.
Upon completing his secondary education by matriculating from Shawnee Mission East High School in 2002, Sanders relocated to Waterville, Maine, where he attended one of the leading and most selective liberal arts colleges in the States – Colby College, from which he graduated in 2006 with his bachelor’s degree in political affairs.
Bryan began his career within the Republican Party where at first he served as its political counselor.
To greater prominence, Sanders came in 2008 when he joined Mike Huckabee’s presidential election campaign. In 2009 Bryan became a member of the political media firm The Wickers Group, for which he served as the manager of the 2010 Robert J. Bentley’s gubernatorial campaign in Alabama.
In 2011 Sanders served as a political counselor of Kansas’ senator Sam Brownback, as well as a press assistant for his Senate office in Washington D.C. In 2012, he was involved in Ted Yoho’s US House of Representatives election campaign, and his works were recognized as ‘the best political ads of 2012’ by Slate’s David Wiegel.
In May 2015 Sanders teamed up with Mike Huckabee again, and was named as media consultant for his 2016 US Presidential campaign. However, after Huckabee suspended his participation in the presidential run, Bryan joined Congressman French Hill’s team as its media consultant, and a pollster for the 2016 US House of Representatives campaign.
Second Street Strategies
Alongside his spouse, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, in 2016 Bryan co-founded a political consulting firm named Second Street Strategies, for which he serves as its president ever since.
So far, Sanders has collaborated with several renowned names of the US political scene, including Congressman Trent Franks, Attorney General Scott Pruitt as well as Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick and State Treasurer Lynn Fitch.
Marriage with Sarah
Bryan and Sarah first met in 2008, when she hired him to manage her father’s presidential run. The two soon began dating, and after the campaign ended, they continued their love story and became engaged in August 2009.
Their wedding ceremony was held on the 25th May 2010 in the city of St. John in the Virgin Islands. In the course of the past decade, Bryan and his wife became parents of sons named George (born in 2010) and William (born in 2013) and a daughter Scarlett Wills (born in 2012).
Sarah Elizabeth Huckabee was born under the zodiac sign of Leo on the 13th August 1982 in Hope, Arkansas, the youngest of three children of Janet and Mike Huckabee, of American nationality and white ethnicity.
She has two older brothers named John Mark and David. Her father, Mike, is a renowned Republican politician, best known for serving as the 44th Governor of Arkansas between 1996 and 2007.
Sarah attended Little Rock Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, after which she went on to study at Ouachita Baptist University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas. She graduated in 2004, earning her Bachelor of Arts degree in political science, with a minor in mass communications. During her college years, she was quite active within various Republican Party’s organizations, while also serving as the university’s student body president.
Her interest in politics dates back to her early age of 10, when alongside other family members, she contributed to her father’s 1992 US Senate campaign. However, her first ‘real’ engagement came in 2002 when she was named as a field co-ordinator during her father’s 2002 Governor of Arkansas re-election campaign. Sarah then joined the team of the 43rd President of the US George W. Bush, serving as the US Department’s regional liaison for congressional affairs, and its field co-ordinator as well.
In 2008 she was appointed as the national political director of Mike Huckabee’s 2008 US Presidential campaign, while in 2012 she served as Tim Pawlenty’s senior adviser. Sarah also worked as an adviser to Tom Cotton in 2014, before she joined the political action committee Huck PAC as its executive director.
After the inauguration of Donald Trump as the United States’ 45th president, Sarah Sanders was named as a deputy White House press secretary.
