Mike Huckabee Talks about Reaching out to Minorities

Here is some snippets from a recent CBS article.

  • (AP) Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee of Arkansas said Friday his fellow Republicans would be making a devastating mistake in the race for the White House if they ignore minorities, unions and other traditionally Democratic groups.
  • While the proliferation of debates has cut into the time candidates have to campaign and raise funds, Huckabee said he has reached out to the AARP, the National Education Association and other groups that tend to vote Democratic.
  • He said he also plans to participate in a PBS debate on minority issues because he believes it is critical that Republicans speak to these concerns. "If Republicans don't win minority votes and votes that we traditionally don't get, Hillary Clinton's the next president," Huckabee said in a teleconference with reporters while campaigning in Iowa.
  • "I want to be the president of the United States, not just the president of the Republican Party," Huckabee said. "I'm still a conservative and I still believe in lower taxes and less government. I'm pro-life and I'm pro-family, but it doesn't mean that I'm not going to listen ... and it doesn't mean I'm not going to govern with a view to being a president to everybody."

This is why Mike Huckabee is the best choice, not just for Republican nominee, but to be President. Nothing gets done when ya have childish partisanship. It shouldn't be about Republicans winning over Democrats just because. It should be about Republicans winning over Democrats because of ideas. And Mike Huckabee has the right ideas. Mike Huckabee is the only one willing to tell everyone about his ideas.

Mike Huckabee is the most like Abraham Lincoln than any other candidate out there. Abraham Lincoln was more concerned about people than party lines. The party of Lincoln started out as a party of the people. Mike Huckabee can bring it back to the party of the people. The Republican party began as a party concerned about minorities.
