Some good insight from a man who knows. Basically saying that a ground game can win in the three early states but in Florida, money is needed.

Former presidential candidate and Fox News host Mike Huckabee tells Newsmax that Rick Santorum can make it all the way to the Republican presidential nomination — and says Rick Perry made an “incredibly bad blunder” in announcing that he was reassessing his campaign after the Iowa caucus.

Huckabee also warns Republicans that President Obama will launch a “vicious campaign” in his battle for re-election, but “the best weapon we have against Obama is Obama.”

Former Arkansas Gov. Huckabee won the Iowa caucuses when he sought the White House in 2008. In an exclusive interview with Newsmax.TV, he comments on Santorum’s strong showing in Iowa, virtually tying Mitt Romney for the lead.

“It didn’t surprise me,” Huckabee says. “In fact, weeks ago I was saying the surprise candidate in Iowa was going to be Rick Santorum, and that was when he was polling four percent. Nobody took me seriously but I stuck by it and proved to be right.

“I was talking to people in Iowa. I sensed what was happening was that there was still unrest. People in Iowa had sort of cycled through all the candidates. Rick Santorum was the last one to get taste-tested and his was coming at exactly the right time.”

Asked if Santorum can garner the Republican nomination, Huckabee responds: “He can. What he has to do is turn what has been a flash of excitement into a depth of organization. He’s raising money now that he wasn’t raising before. Then the challenge is can you mobilize volunteers and structure in all those states.
