Not much new info here, but I'm glad Huckabee is out there making the rounds.

Huckabee gets warm reception from House Republicans
The sources say that the 2016 presidential race and the possibility of another Huckabee candidacy were the topics of conversation during the meeting, and that the larger than expected crowd encouraged Huckabee.

While in Washington Tuesday and Wednesday, the sources say that Huckabee is also attending other meetings, including one at the Republican National Committee. He is doing some fundraising for HuckPAC, the political action committee he founded back in 2008 to promote conservative causes.
Late last year Huckabee started talking like someone who was interested in running for president again. It was a very different language than what we heard from Huckabee prior to the 2012 election cycle, which the Fox News Channel weekend host sat out.

Huckabee held meetings in Iowa and South Carolina, which holds the first southern primary, talking not only to social conservatives but also but also business leaders, many of whom were suspicious of his economic populism during his 2008 run.
And 65% of Iowa Republicans questioned recently in a Des Moines Register poll said they thought it would be a good idea if the former Arkansas governor ran for president again.
WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told about 70 Republican House members Wednesday that he is considering another run for the White House – but that campaign cash remains a key issue for him....

The session at the Republican National Committee is Huckabee’s most serious sign so far that he is leaning toward another national campaign.
On Twitter, Rep. Bill Huizenga of Michigan posted a picture of himself with Huckabee and said he “heard lots of positive ideas for getting the country on the right track.” He also said Huckabee “seems to be testing the waters for presidential run by stopping in DC this morning.”
“The most common thoughts expressed to me by those in attendance related to Gov. Huckabee’s unique ability to personify the heart and soul of the Republican Party while being able to personally relate to all Americans,” said Rep. Trent Franks, R-Ariz.
Franks said the turnout was “an extremely positive reflection on Gov. Huckabee and the level of respect he has generated among a very broad philosophical and geographical cross-section of Congress.”
