Huckabee v. Pryor II

Posted By on Sat, Mar 31, 2007 at 6:42 AM

In an interview with Aaron Sadler at Stephens, Mike Huckabee reiterates what he'd told a blogger earlier -- he won't challenge Sen. Mark Pryor in 2008. He said he wanted to put rumors to bed. There are "no ifs," he said.

Huckabee has been getting pressure from national Republicans to quit the presidential race to go after Pryor's Senate seat, the article says. With Huckabee out, the Republicans are left with few options in Arkansas.

Meanwhile, he reports that his first quarter of presidential fund-raising will show he's picked up $500,000. Spinning, he said that was his goal and he's satisfied, even if the Giulianis and Romneys and McCains of the Republican world are raising many millions. I caught a sliver of Huckabee on Hardball tonight. He was asked about money. He said that when candidates appear together, they don't wear signs showing how much each has raised. They compete on message. All true. But the money sometimes determines how often voters see and hear a candidate's message.
