Of iinterest: the author states that with Huckabee in the race, Rick Santorum has no rationale for entering the race.... Click on the URL to read more.

Mike Huckabee's presidential candidacy could mean trouble for other conservatives seeking the Republican nomination.

Huckabee, who will announce Tuesday in his hometown of Hope, Ark., that he'll run a second time for the White House, won the Iowa caucuses seven years ago, mostly by capturing the support of religious conservatives.

The former Arkansas governor and ordained Southern Baptist minister went on to win seven other primary contests. Some political strategists say he could at least repeat his 2008 success in 2016.

"Mike Huckabee is an Iowa front-runner right out of the gate," Sara Craig, who in 2012 served as Mitt Romney's political director in Iowa, told the Washington Examiner. "His supporters are incredibly loyal and will remain with him. As a former caucus winner, he knows how to win in a tough-to-navigate state like Iowa."

I agree that Santorum wouldn't have a rationale for entering the race...

Does Jindal have a rationale for entering? (Southern Governor, social conservative)

In general, the article's tone towards and characterization of Gov. Huckabee is unfairly negative.

So many unanswered questions. I understand Santorum is announcing his decision on 5/27. I hope Perry sits out too, so Huckabee can make the experience argument. And I'm not sold on Walker being a big player. Does he have staying power? He could be another Pawlenty.
