Huckabee the spoiler

Posted By on Mon, Sep 1, 2008 at 6:40 AM

Tom Tancredo is still steamed at Mike Huckabee for torpedoing Mitt Romney. He figures Huck saved the day for McCain.

It was the Huckabee factor. [Former Arkansas] Governor [Mike] Huckabee decided to stay in even though he could not have won. He absolutely made a difference, and he knew it, and that difference was he was able to keep Mitt Romney out of the play by draining off conservative votes. And I think he did it to a large extent because Mitt is a Mormon. It was really to ruin Romney's chances. So that created the pathway for Senator McCain.

Nonetheless, Mitt and Mike made nice at an appearance Sunday for McCain.
