ITS A BATTLE: Mike Huckabee on weight loss.
  • 'IT'S A BATTLE': Mike Huckabee on weight loss.
An interviewer at the Raleigh Telegram in North Carolina asked former Arkansan Mike Huckabee about his efforts at weight loss and the possibility of a future return to politics.

On weight:

In regards to his very public battle to lose weight, Huckabee said he has had mixed success. He initially lost a lot of weight, but has put some back on since then.

“It’s been a battle all my life, I’ve put 30 pounds back on,” said Governor Huckabee. “I messed up my knee running the New York Marathon and I’ve never quite gotten over that.”

He said that it’s hard to keep the weight off especially in today’s society that encourages you to eat.

“It’s a battle…but ultimately, it’s my responsibility,” he said.

A return to politics?

“Good question…I don’t rule anything out,” he said. “If someone asked me four years ago I’d be doing television and radio, I would have said ‘gee no, I’d rather be in the White House.”

    Prior to the appearance of Donald Trump last night in Little Rock after a nearly two-hour delay, Barton Coliseum general manager Ralph Shoptaw came before the crowd to say that attendance for the Trump event, at 11,500, had broken a record at Barton set all the way back in 1974 during a show by the blues-rock band ZZ Top. Trump would later brag on the turnout from the stage, bumping the number up to 12,000 while saying he'd been setting similar records all over the country.  Photos and video from the event, however, would seem to tell a different story.
