White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is leaving the Trump administration after serving the president for more than three years.

President Donald Trump announced Sanders’ imminent departure via tweet on Thursday afternoon. He praised her work and even encouraged her to follow in her father’s footsteps and run for governor of her home state of Arkansas.

“After 3 1/2 years, our wonderful Sarah Huckabee Sanders will be leaving the White House at the end of the month and going home to the Great State of Arkansas,” Trump wrote.

He went on, “She is a very special person with extraordinary talents, who has done an incredible job! I hope she decides to run for Governor of Arkansas – she would be fantastic. Sarah, thank you for a job well done!”

Unlike many of the president’s top aides, Sanders was bred in politics. She’s the daughter of former Arkansas governor and two-time presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, and she served as field director for her father’s 2002 gubernatorial reelection campaign, was the national political director for his 2008 presidential campaign, and headed his 2016 presidential bid.
