Huckabee Rolls over McCain

Unsurprisingly to readers of this blog, but incredibly surprisingly to scads of high paid professional pundits, Gov. Mike Huckabee stands as the last challenger to John McCain for the nomination.

And Huckabee rolled over McCain like a bus today.

And Then There Were Two








Promoted From Comments

I want to thank this blog for being the first pro-Huckabee blog on the internet. It was through this blog, that I first endorsed Mike Huckabee and was contacted by David Huckabee. Almost a year later, I am proud to have served as the Arizona Chairman of the Huckabee For President campaign. I stated from the beginning to fellow conservatives in Arizona, that I was supporting the only God-fearing Christian that had a chance of winning. That proved to be true. Thank you for advocating on this blog for Mike Huckabee.State Senator Jack HarperArizona Chairman, Huckabee For President, Inc.

State Senator Jack Harper, Arizona

Editor's note: Senator Harper, I do remember you as one of the early believers. Thank you for your comment and for your support of Gov. Mike Huckabee. These truly are exciting times.

Southern States Boost Huckabee

As we have predicted for years, Gov. Mike Huckabee is a son of the South and as such he is the ONLY candidate who can keep the vital Southern bloc of states together. Without the Southern bloc, the GOP would have lost the White House in the last two elections (and it is largely the reason Clinton won the two before that).



Here's the most surprising quote from the story below (surprising to pundits, not to us):



"The showing made Huckabee, rather than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the second-strongest Republican in the nationwide round of voting."



As recently as 6 months ago NOBODY, we mean NOBODY but us and a handful of devoted Bloggers 4 Huckabee gave him any chance whatsoever to even COMPETE on Super Tuesday -- and he turns out to be the SECOND STRONGEST among the GOP candidates.



Where's Fred? Where's Rudy? Why is Romney still even here spending away his kid's inheritance like a drunken Congressman?



From the LA Times:



Southern states keep Huckabee's bid alive


Though far behind front-runner McCain, the former Arkansas governor stays competitive with rival Romney, who outspends him many times over.Times staff and wire reportsFebruary 6, 2008



After a series of victories in the South and border states Tuesday, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee insisted he can still secure the Republican presidential nomination, promising supporters that he would be the "one guy answering the bell every time there's a new round." While he remains far behind front-runner Sen. John McCain of Arizona in the contest for delegates to this summer's Republican nominating convention, Huckabee captured enough states Tuesday -- at least five -- to establish himself as a viable conservative alternative.



The showing made Huckabee, rather than former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, the second-strongest Republican in the nationwide round of voting. "I believe that one of the things you're seeing across this nation is that people are saying the conservatives do have a choice," Huckabee told his cheering supporters in Little Rock, Ark., late Tuesday. "Because the conservatives have a voice and tonight they're getting a chance to express that . . . they'll get to continue expressing that choice and that voice."



Television pundits were praising Huckabee for hanging tough in the Republican race, although he was being outspent many times over, particularly by Romney. The candidate compared himself in an interview with CNN's Campbell Brown to Sunday's long-shot Super Bowl champions, the New York Giants. "It still is a land of the people," Huckabee said, "and we're going to continue to prove that even with limited resources but lots of heart, the presidency can belong to the people of this country."



Flanked by his wife, Janet, Huckabee added: "We're proving that we're still on our feet and much to the amazement of many, we're getting there, folks, we're getting there."
