Maybe some of you guys can relate to this, but I find it interesting that a side effect of Donald Trump's rise within the Republican party has been that a lot of the people / interest groups that opposed Gov. Huckabee when he ran 8 years ago, have now been sidelined / defeated / declined in influence, because (interestingly!) many of those same persons and groups opposed Trump also:

For example:

Mitt Romney
Club for Growth
Glenn Beck
Erick Erickson / RedState
George Will


I'm sure you guys can think of others that slip my mind now.

One of the more tragic figures this time around for me was Marco Rubio, who was a Huckabee supporter in '08, but was completely "owned" by establishment money this time around.

Does Club for Growth support Gov. Mike Pence? Thought I heard they did. It never made sense why they did not like Huckabee.

I think they do. Though they oppose Trump.
