The Arkansas Times reports:
Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders’ kickoff party for the Arkansas Razorbacks 2023 football season cost over $13,000, according to public records obtained by the Arkansas Times. Sanders’ party – unironically dubbed the “Undefeated Party” – took place at the Governor’s Mansion on Sept. 1, the night before Arkansas’s football season officially started at War Memorial Stadium.
The invitation-only soiree boasted head Hog Sam Pittman, three mascots in full costume, the University of Arkansas cheerleaders and dance team, and members of the brass section of the school band. Ironically, if somewhat predictably, the whole “Undefeated” party theme would not age well. Lecterngate was in full swing by Sept. 15, while Arkansas lost the first of six straight games on Sept. 16.
