The incredible Huck UPDATE

Posted By on Fri, Jun 11, 2010 at 7:24 AM

Polling shows that Florida tax shelter Mike Huckabee continues to be strongest among potential Republican challengers to Barack Obama in 2012. Only two points back.

UPDATE: Huckabee fired a shot in the 2012 presidential debate today by blasting Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels' statement that the GOP should call a truce on social issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage. Not for Huckabee. From Politico:


"Apparently, a 2012 Republican presidential prospect in an interview with a reporter has made the suggestion that the next president should call for a 'truce' on social issues like abortion and traditional marriage to focus on fiscal problems," Huckabee said. "In other words, stop fighting to end abortion and don’t make protecting traditional marriage a priority."


"For those of us who have labored long and hard in the fight to educate the Democrats, voters, the media and even some Republicans on the importance of strong families, traditional marriage and life to our society, this is absolutely heartbreaking. And that one of our Republican 'leaders' would suggest this truce, even more so," noted Huckabee, a committed social conservative who is weighing another presidential run
