Mike Huckabee's Thoughts on the Annointed Front Runners

Here is an article about Mike Huckabee talking about why he is running and why he is the better choice than McThomRomIuliani and his fundraiser in Texarkana.

  • (AP) Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says talk among some conservative Christians to back a third-party candidate if the GOP nominates someone who supports abortion rights suggests that front-runners aren't connecting with the party's base. "I think it says about the media-anointed front-runners that there's some dissatisfaction...That's why I'm in the race," Huckabee told reporters before a private fundraiser Tuesday. "If you look at some of the people who maybe have a lot of money but their ideas don't resonate with the Republican base voters, so it's not surprising." Huckabee, a Southern Baptist minister, noted his opposition to abortion and said he doesn't think it's necessary for Christian evangelicals to threaten leaving the party. More than 40 Christian conservatives attended a meeting Saturday in Salt Lake City to discuss the possibility of supporting a third-party candidate. "I don't think it's necessary at all to be thinking about a third party. I think it's necessary to think about the people who have been out there on the track," Huckabee said. "The fact that a few people talk about a third party doesn't mean they're the rank and file. There's a lot of people who are quite satisfied with my candidacy within that group of evangelical and social conservatives."
