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.)
