About Mike Huckabee
Mike Huckabee is no stranger to Presidential politics. He was runner-up to John McCain for the Republican
nomination in 2008. After that race, Huckabee began his career as a successful talk show host and public
speaker, and when approached to run again in 2012, he declined.
Huckabee uses his Southern charm and friendly personality to full effect when campaigning, and has the ability
to explain even the most complex issues in a common-sense style that everyone can understand. He has used his
notoriety to build relationships with both grassroots organizations and national donors to position himself well
for another run.
While Huckabee continues to speak about his fiscal conservative believes, he also does not shy away from his
strong positions on social issues, including abortion and gay marriage. While the mix of these two sides of the
conservative coin played well in 2008, they may not help Huckabee in 2016 as the mood of the country has
shifted, and as the Republican party has become more libertarian and anti-government. As a populist member of
the establishment, Huckabee may face headwinds even fighting for the GOP nomination.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee on Wednesday blasted Ted Cruz after a POLITICO report quoted the Texas senator telling a donor that fighting gay marriage wouldn’t be a “top-three priority” for his administration.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Hillary Clinton's embrace of gun control is a more accurate reflection of her political roots than the pro-gun persona she adopted in her failed 2008 presidential bid.
Mike Huckabee laced into the U.S.' anti-ISIL strategy on Monday, calling on House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) to prevent more Syrian refugees from entering the country without assurances that they can be sussed out from potential terrorist threats in their midst, in the wake of Friday's deadly attacks in Paris.
we should do nothing because the cost of dealing with global warming is far higher than the potential damage. We should perhaps sign on to some international agreements, but make only minimal financial commitments for now.
Belief in God is what America was founded upon, so religious organizations, or praying in school, does not violate the separation of church and state. Religious institutions should be involved in welfare or education.
