Four Great Articles about Gov. Huckabee

Several great Article have been written about Gov. Huckabee in the past few days. Takes some time to read them!! I have included small snippets of each article.

ABC News Article:

Propelled by little more than his message and political skills, Republican presidential contender former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has vaulted into a statistical dead heat for first place in crucial, first-in-the-nation caucus state Iowa, according to a new ABC News/Washington Post poll.

Huckabee The most Reagan like GOP candidate:

But Wapshott says former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is the closest match — especially in one important category.

“Like Reagan, he is a true Christian. He has very sure principles. I mean, he’s a Baptist minister,” says Wapshott. “In the same way … Reagan learned many of his core values in his family and from his mother’s church. [Reagan’s] mother was from the Disciples of Christ [denomination] in Dixon, Illinois, where Ronald Reagan learned all his fundamental beliefs.”

The author believes Huckabee would be much different than the presumptive Democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton.

Fox News Article:

The cash register struck a million at midnight for the Cinderella presidential campaign of Mike Huckabee.

According to the former Arkansas governor’s Web site, he received $1,043,496.41 in donations in the first 20 days of November, exceeding the campaign’s goal of $1 million and inching closer to meeting the monthly goal of $2 million.

The GOP dark horse-turned-contender has been riding a surge of strong polling and buzz in Iowa and played a significant role in hauling in gobs of online donations by the midnight Tuesday deadline.

Election 2008: South Carolina Republican Primary:Rasmussen Reports:

The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds both men earning 21% of the vote from Likely Primary Voters. That’s a big change from September when Thompson was on top with support from 24% and Romney trailed the frontrunner by nine percentage points.

Trailing the two leaders are Rudy Giuliani at 13%, Mike Huckabee at 12%, John McCain at 9%, and Ron Paul at 8%. Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter each earn support from 2% while 13% are undecided (see crosstabs).

Those numbers reflect a seven-point drop for Giuliani, a nine-point gain for Huckabee, little change for McCain, and a six-point jump for Paul.
