Team Huckabee announced in Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina

Posted By on Mon, Sep 28, 2015 at 8:15 AM

As Max mentioned yesterday, the polls indicate Mike Huckabee's presidential aspirations are sagging further as he fails to distinguish himself in a GOP field crowded with more entertaining prospects.

Sounds like Huckabee isn't quitting anytime soon, though: Talk Business reports this morning that he's announced leadership teams in four Southern states with "SEC primaries" on March 1 of next year, Arkansas, Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina. (He'd announced teams in Iowa and South Carolina in August.)

The Arkansas list of Republican notables includes four out of the state's six-member congressional delegation. Prominently missing are U.S. Senator Tom Cotton and 3rd District Rep. Steve Womack. Some neoconservatives and a few Arkansas Republicans are urging Cotton to run for the White House himself.

Huckabee managed to secure the endorsement of a single U.S. congressman in each of the other three states, as well as Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
