Michigan Endorsement Announced by the Huckabee Campaign

Sorry, the photo didn't turn out too well.

I had reported previously reported that Rev. Keith Butler from Word of Faith International Christian Center Church in Michigan endorsed Mike Huckabee, at the Clinton County Lincoln Day Dinner in East Lansing, Michigan. I could complain that the campaign waited two weeks to announce this, but I waited about four days to announce this. I didn't even notice the press release until someone commented on my post and pointed me to the release. Thank you, "Anonymous", whoever you are.
