Most Americans miss former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.
After resigning from her position back in July, Sanders was hired by Fox News to serve as a contributor.
But we may be seeing more of Sanders now that President Donald Trump just nominated her to join the Fulbright Scholarship Board.
The White House announced Wednesday that Sanders would be returning to public service in some form, as the president nominated her to a three-year term on the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board.
Sanders took to Twitter to thank Trump for the nomination, writing, “Grateful to @realDonaldTrump to be named to the @fulbrightboard – established by the late U.S. Senator from my home state of Arkansas.”
Sanders and her allies have reportedly been making calls to GOP donors and operatives in her home state to test the waters about her possibly running for governor of Arkansas.
During a rally in August, Trump put his support behind Sanders running for governor.
During his rally announcing his re-election bid, Trump brought Sanders onto the stage and said: “I have a feeling she’s going to be running for a certain gubernatorial position.”
Trump also took to Twitter shortly after the rally and said he hopes Sanders will run for governor.
"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. 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!" Trump wrote.

If she chooses to follow in her father's footsteps, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, the seat for governor opens up in 2022.
And, she already has the endorsement of the president of the United States, which carries a lot of weight.
