Huckabee's campaign — and talk — are cheap

Failing presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is spinning madly — and his former employer, Fox News, gives him morning exposure nearly daily to do more — about his low state in the polls and fund-raising.

Yesterday on CNBC's "Closing Bell" he said his 10th-place money raising was no problem.

"People look at these numbers and they forget it’s not how much you raise, it’s what you do with it,” Huckabee told CNBC’s “Closing Bell.” “We keep a low overhead. We run the crusade like most people wish the federal government would be run: very frugally.” 

Huckabee is more like Washington than he wants to let on.

In the most recent quarter, he spent 10 percent more than he took in ($1.24 million in, $1.32 million out.)

    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.
