Mike Huckabee was in Atlanta again today (he attended the MKL event yesterday) at the Georgia March for Life. He told reporters not to count him out:
As the Arkansas governor addressed participants in Georgia’s March for Life earlier, support from his stalwart base — religious conservatives — was evident. But although the chilly drizzle didn’t deter supporters, it seemed to be an apt metaphor for his dampened campaign hopes in the wake of a disappointing second place finish the South Carolina primary. With yesterday’s news that his campaign would no longer be providing transportation for its traveling press, many of the questions Huckabee fielded today asked the question: “Is the campaign sunk?”
Huckabee says that he hasn’t lost momentum. “Our scrappy little army’s doing pretty well out there on the battlefield,” he said, adding that he remains in second place in the total delegate count in the GOP race so far.
Huckabee said that the recent cuts in travel expenses were due to a decreased need as well as to financial considerations. Noting the campaign always operates in the black, he added, “Unlike some of the candidates who can write a big ol’ fat personal check and cover everything, I can’t.”
