Huckabee announces 2016 White House bid

Published May 05, 2015

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee announced Tuesday he is running for president, entering an already-crowded Republican field in his second campaign for the White House.

“I am a candidate for president of the United States of America," said Huckabee during an event in his hometown of Hope, Ark.

Huckabee, a former Baptist minister, ran for president in 2008, winning eight states including the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses before running out of money and exiting the race.

The 59-year-old Huckabee has a strong following among the party’s evangelical Christian base but this time will face stiff competition for that vote from such primary candidates as Dr. Ben Carson and Sen. Ted Cruz, of Texas.

Huckabee, who left his job as a Fox News host earlier this year in preparation for a potential 2016 run, was Arkansas governor from 1996 to 2007, serving after Bill Clinton, who also is from Hope. And he was the state’s lieutenant governor from 1993 to 1996.

He already is trying to position himself as the GOP candidate best equipped to defeat Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner.

I just donated my first $20 this cycle.

He sure seems to have the fire this time.

Did anyone else notice the two shots across the bow at Cruz and Rubio?

I loved the tone and passion he generated.

I'm very impressed by the rollout. The staging was powerful, and the new website is great. This is a different campaign than last time.
