Sanders says goodbye as White House press secretary

ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders, will leave her job at the end of the month to return to her home state of Arkansas, Trump said on Thursday.

The Republican Sanders, who is 36 and has three young children, has drawn fire from the White House Correspondents Association for ending daily briefings, with Trump preferring to take questions himself from reporters and command the White House stage.

The last briefing was 94 days ago, but Trump answers questions from reporters on a near-daily basis, including two extended sessions with them on Wednesday.

Sanders called the job "the honor of a lifetime." Sanders evolved into a senior adviser and confidante of the president, one who is regularly brought into senior-level meetings.

Speculation immediately turned to whether Sanders might run for governor of Arkansas, a position once held by her father, Mike Huckabee.
