Huckabee heads to Iowa

Posted By on Wed, Oct 20, 2010 at 11:24 AM

The political press thinks it's looking more certain that Mike Huckabee will run for president again in 2012. A coming trip to speak to a religious right group important in the Iowa Republican caucuses is the latest evidence.

A source familiar with Huckabee’s plans said he'll speak “about the role of the church regarding God-honoring civics, the current assault on marriage and family, and what it means to be a Christian statesman.” Iowa is a pivotal battleground in the fight over gay marriage this year: Social conservatives, including Huckabee endorser Bob Vander Plaats, are aiming to unseat members of the state Supreme Court who voted to legalize same-sex unions.

Meanwhile, while Mike Huckabee hopes to ride gay bashing to an Iowa caucus victory (a good bet, sad to say), Hillary Rodham Clinton is standing up for decency by joining the "It Gets Better" outreach to gay kids.
