ABC News: UPDATED: Former Arkansas governor and potential presidential aspirant Mike Huckabee is telling a radio audience on Friday that he plans to make “a very important announcement” over the weekend.
“This weekend be sure to catch my Fox News television show,” Huckabee says. “A very important announcement coming this Saturday.”
Huckabee did not elaborate on the nature of the announcement, which he teased on his syndicated radio program “The Huckabee Report.”
“I’m not exactly sure what the content’s going to be,” Hogan Gidley, the executive director of Huckabee's political action committee, told ABC News. “He doesn’t go around throwing around a big announcement for nothing.” [MORE]I am hoping he is going to say NO. Huckabee has always struck me as a Republican Bill Clinton. A crafty politician who is often too cute by half. A look at Huckabee's record as governor and it is pretty clear he is not a staunch conservative. The last thing we need in 2012 is a president without solid principles or convictions.
The only upside to Huckabee running in 2012 would be to see him do his damnedest to undermine Mitt Romney. Romney could not dispatch Huckabee in 2008 and I doubt he could in 2012. Huck might just be the thing to make sure Romney loses the nomination.
