Mike Huckabee could pick a better class of politician as a key campaign supporter than his congressional chair, U.S. Rep. Don Young. The Alaska congressman continues to pile up news coverage for smelly deals. Young, already famous for a $200 million bridge to nowhere in Alaska, got NY Times coverage for a $10 million earmark for a Florida road project that benefits a Young campaign contributor. We'll want to look for the name of the developer, Daniel Aronoff, among folks who've turned up at Young-sponsored  fund-raisers for Huckabee.
