It’s no secret the Club for Growth is critical of Mike Huckabee. Last night I saw this ad on my TV screen:
I also received two emails from people pointing me to articles critical of the former Arkansas Governor. Clearly the Huckaboom has gotten people’s attention and thus the examination of his record.
Meanwhile, the Political Insider reports Huckabee’s campaign is bringing the Religious Right together here in Georgia. They make mention of PP regular Maurice Atkinson who sent an email earlier in the week that said this:
I was talking with some friends in North Georgia today about the Huckabee campaign. After keeping an open mind and watching the progression of these campaigns only one is gaining measurable momentum and energizing the base. That is Mike Huckabee.
Six months ago I would have never thought the man would be where he is. I felt his exposure was too limited and his fundraising capability would be limited as well.
I was obviously wrong. He has a strong populace audience and a powerful message. I’m thrilled that a man with such character and vision is seeking the presidency. America needs a Mike Huckabee.
