Oh cool! Now we just need some Iowans to hogtie him & put him on a stump... :wink:

BTW, somebody (one of us?) commented after the news blurb about writing Huckabee's name in - be sure to "Like" it!

How awesome would it be if he announced?

While I would be ecstatic if he announced at any time any where, I don't believe it would be well received if he did it at that time. It would make more sense to wait for the outcome, give people a little time to stew on the results, and then announce.

True, but that was more of a dream than really thinking it will happen. I don't think that it would be the right timing, but a man can dream right?

Though, it is kind of curious why he would hold a live show in Iowa at the straw poll. I wonder why?

By doing his show live won't he have a good chance of interviewing the other candidates after they announce the results? I don't know what time the results will be announced though. Maybe the candidates who don't do well in the straw poll will announce they are dropping out on his show and then he can announce that he's in. :wink:

I just keep thinking that this is NOT how I pictured the straw poll going:

....Gov. Huckabee is NOT a candidate

...I'm working at the Huck PAC booth INSTEAD of the Huckabee for President tent

...Gov. Huckabee broadcasting as a Fox show host live and interviewing other candidates


.....it just feels wrong and very weird. scratch

It just goes to show that it's VERY difficult to predict the future.

Here's what we know so far...

Gates open at 9 AM CT (those who are working the booth are arriving at 7:30 am to set up)

Straw poll winner announced around 6 PM CT

Huckabee show starts at 7 PM CT

Ticket ($30) needed to listen to candidate speeches and to vote in straw poll (only IA residents can vote)

Tickets are NOT needed for the show...it will be taped in an open area and spectators can come and go as they please.

I would recommend if you can drive to Ames, IA...COME! This is a unique opportunity to be part of a presidential event, support Huck PAC, watch a Huckabee show live and see the Gov!

I'll have some extra free Team Huck shirts at the booths - I'll pass them out till they are gone!

We're trying to arrange a meet/greet for supporters to visit with Gov. Huckabee either before or after show taping...more on that as details are available.

Send me a PM if you have other questions.

NOTE: If you are thinking of coming...get a hotel NOW (you can always cancel). They are getting very hard to find.

Yes, I'm planning to come.

Do you know when the candidate's speeches are and if we have to pay the $30 to hear them? Also, does one need a ticket to hear Gov. Huckabee recording his show?

This is very exciting. I hope more of you can come and we can have a meet and greet!

I will gladly help in the HuckPAC booth.

A ticket is required ($30) if you plan to listen to candidate speeches and/or vote (which only Iowa folks can do).

Tickets can be purchased at the gate.

No ticket is required to get in and just walk around or work at Huck PAC booth.

No ticket is required to watch the Huckabee show - it is out in the open and you can come and go as you please.

The gates open at 9 AM, voting til 4 PM, winner announced at 6 PM...Huckabee show at 7 PM.

The presidential debate on Thursday night is sold out.

Hotel rooms are getting scarce.

Wow, this all sounds rather exciting. I'm getting quite jealous of you Iowa folks with all this easy access to candidates.

I'm trying to wrap my mind around it by comparing population size and all. Iowa apparently has 3 million people in it. So for me, this would be like if the candidates all came down for awhile and exclusively spent time in San Antonio and Austin. That would be very nice.

I love it how you make me laugh or nod in agreement, QVA. You are such an asset to Huck's Army and certainly deserve to attend!

My hope and prayer for this weekend is to get my dream of seeing Huckabee recording his show. If, Lord-willing, I make it (it seems too good to be real!) you will possibly see me in the vast crowd, wearing my Team Huck shirt and looking perhaps a little too awestruck and smiley! I will try with all my heart not to appear smug, but I will be thinking of you and other friends here, wishing we could all be together there.

JustGrace: If you do make it to Ames, then please find me!

I have the balloons ordered for the HuckPac booth and the weather for the day sounds great.

I will certainly make that effort! Can't wait to meet you. Sounds like it should be a great and historic day.
