Presidential politics

Posted By on Wed, Jun 14, 2006 at 6:12 AM

The Huckster apparently is finding time to do a little work on future goals while governing. From Hotline:

For those following the presidential derby, the knock on Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-AR) has been that he was late to the game ... and not doing enough to recruit staff.

The Waterloo Courier reports today that Huckabee's PAC has retained the services of Eric Woolson, who in '00 was George W. Bush's chief Iowa spokesman.

That means Huckabee has a savvy, well-regarded Iowa media sherpa. His Washington consultant, Kirsten Fedewa, helps organize events for him across the country and makes sure to keep Huckabee in front of the national political press corps, including several Hotliners.

It's a start.
