“Asa Hutchinson, the lightweight RINO Governor of Arkansas, just vetoed a Bill that banned the CHEMICAL CASTRATION OF CHILDREN,” Trump said in a statement Tuesday. “’Bye-bye Asa,’” that’s the end of him! Fortunately for the Great State of Arkansas, Sarah Huckabee Sanders will do a fantastic job as your next Governor!”
Hutchinson has defended his action on the bill calling it a measure that went beyond the responsibilities of government.
Hutchinson, a Republican, is term limited. He has often positioned himself as a more traditional conservative amid a groundswell of support for populist candidates like Trump within the GOP.
Sanders left her post at the White House during the Trump administration in 2019 to return to her home state of Arkansas, at the time only teasing her own run for office.
