Huckabee tells Pewaukee crowd he’s sticking aroundRepublican presidential long-shot Mike Huckabee started a three-day splash in Wisconsin by vowing to stay in the race until the end.
Republican presidential long-shot Mike Huckabee started a three-day splash in Wisconsin by vowing to stay in the race until the end.
The former Arkansas governor has about a quarter of the delegates of GOP front-runner John McCain.
But he told several hundred people in Pewaukee last night the election is not just about winning but about upholding the Republicans’ core principles.
Huckabee, a Baptist minister, proclaimed himself the only candidate to support a Human Life Amendment to the Constitution.
His comments on abortion drew the biggest applause of the night.
Today (Thursday), Huckabee will be in Madison, La Crosse, Wausau and Green Bay.
He has a breakfast planned in Brookfield Friday before leaving for the Cayman Islands where he’s scheduled to speak to young professionals on Saturday.
Huckabee has gotten some heat for that. But he said the paid speech was planned months ago and he won’t apologize for making a living.
John McCain is due in the state Friday.
