More on the Huck Watch beat: Florida's SaintPetersBlog flags new polling that shows Mike Huckabee an early favorite for the 2018 Florida governor's race: 

As for the Republicans, this is the real shocker: Mike Huckabee, yes that Mike Huckabee, is the early frontrunner for the 2018 nom. As Florida Politics first reported last week, there is talk within Panhandle political circles that Huckabee may be interested in running in two years. These numbers will do nothing to slow that speculation. Coming in second on the GOP’s wish list is Pam Bondi. Surprisingly, Adam Putnam is in third place, barely polling ahead of Jeff Atwater and Will Weatherford.
The poll found that 37 percent of likely Republican primary voters said they would vote for Huckabee if he runs. Huckabee moved in to a $3 million beachfront mansion near Destin in 2011.
