LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KAIT) - NBC News projects former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders will win the Republican primary election for Arkansas governor.

She defeated Doc Washburn, a former Little Rock radio talk show host, and current podcaster.

Sanders will face the winner of the Democratic primary and five others: Ricky Dale Harrinton, Jr. of the Libertarian party and four other independent write-in candidates.

The winner of the November election will replace Gov. Asa Hutchinson, who is term limited.
