Sarah Huckabee Sanders, the Republican nominee for governor of Arkansas and a former press secretary to President Donald Trump, underwent thyroid cancer surgery, she said in a statement on Friday.

“During a checkup earlier this month, my doctor ordered a biopsy on an area of concern in my neck and the test revealed that I had thyroid cancer,” she said.
