Did nobody write in other candidates? That's a crying shame!


Someone said there was around 162 other votes but we don't know yet who they are for.

Quote:
Huckabee at the straw poll: ‘America needs Iowa to happen’

Josh Hafner

1:23 PM, Aug 13, 2011
Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor and 2008 Iowa caucus winner, softly plucked a bass guitar while candidate and gospel singer Herman Cain bellowed what could be his campaign’s anthem:

“Hold on just a little while longer/Everything’s going to be all right.”

Huckabee stopped by Cain’s Iowa Straw Poll tent today (wearing a Fox News press badge) to perform to a big crowd after jamming with Michigan Congressman Thad McCotter that morning.


Huckabee came out of nowhere to take second in the 2007 straw poll, a shock that helped bolster his campaign toward caucus victory. His Huck PAC has a tent at on the grounds today, but Huckabee said he came out to show his support for the entire GOP field.

“They believe the right things,” he said. “I love them, and whoever it is (that gets the nomination), they’re going to have my support.”

After slinging his guitar off his neck and exiting Cain’s tent, Huckabee said that Iowa is and should be critical of the presidential election process.

“Candidates don’t just come here and pop in and make a speech and collect 35,000 a plate and leave,” he said. “They’ve got to sit and talk to people and they’ve got to answer tough questions, and America needs Iowa to happen.”

Yet for all of the importance that Hucabeek placed on the state’s role, he offered cautionary advice for today’s straw poll winner.

“Don’t assume what happened in the straw poll is tantamount to winning the caucus,” he said. “You’ve got to go from here to build on it. It’s a platform. It’s not a determination point.”

We Team Huck members were kept SO BUSY meeting Iowans stopping by the beautiful Huck PAC booth that was created by Randy Davis that I never made it to any of the other tents of the candidates.

My husband loved the Iowa Straw Poll! He was going to go to the Iowa State Fair but he never made it there on Saturday. It was too much fun and too interesting seeing all the hoopla and (truth be told) going from candidate to candidate's tent and taking advantage of free food. Pawlenty had too long a line but I think had barbeque beef. My hubby said that Michelle Bachman not only won the poll vote but also the food contest. I would hate to see the food bill!!! She served some sort of roast beef, mashed potatoes, gravy stack in a bowl, topped with a cherry tomato to make it look like a sundae, with ice cream cups for dessert. Hubby brought Shelley and me hot dogs and juice pack from Ron Paul and the energy group. Hubby kept us supplied with Herman Cain's Godfather's pizza. and fruit pops from the McCotter campaign.

No, it wasn't all about food! :wink:

Just about.

But Michelle came in first with food, too. The lines at the Santorum and Pawlenty campaign were too long so we didn't taste theirs. I got tickled that one guy came by and asked where Huckabee's Arkansas watermelon was that he had in the 2007 Iowa Straw Poll. I answered that we had the water but not the melon! And Shelley kept me busy refilling the big tub of water bottles on ice and keeping the candy buckets filled! :wink:

The biggest candy consumers were not the Huckabee fans! Huck people are so polite and sweet and a few even asked, "May I have some of this candy (or water)?" They were the sweetest fans I know. Even Janet Huckabee told us several times thank-you for going the extra mile and being the last to fold up the booth. We stayed until almost six when the results of the poll were announced and every person who wanted to sign up for the Huckabee book drawing had stopped by.

Shelley is a great organizer and a sweetie! And I'll tell you more about some other Huck fans pretty soon. Stopping for dinner in Omaha!

I love this photo of Janet Huckabee's encouraging shoulder pat for her husband. When you see them together you know that Janet is a great part of Governor Huckabee's success. Janet stopped by the booth a couple of times. She told us that Governor Huckabee would be by later; she was keeping track of all his visits and events. One of the most fun parts of being at the Huck PAC booth was to meet her and see Governor Huckabee. They truly love their fans and helpers!

Governor Huckabee came by about 10:00 AM and visited, shook hands, said thank-you and let us take photos together. (Hope to post some here when I get home. I have over 800 photos on my camera and need to get them on CD first). The reporters and photographers descended upon Governor Huckabee everywhere he stopped, seeking interviews, poking microphones in his face. And the same was true at the Huck PAC booth.

I wonder if Governor Huckabee were not about the most-sought interview at the Straw Poll. My husband was astounded how gracious and untiring Mike Huckabee could be with all the reporters, big and small. They hounded him and followed him like he was the Pied Piper! He is the ultimately courteous and thoughtful candidate (I still am hoping!). The little old ladies with earnest pleas that they needed him to run for our country's sake were given as much or more attention and courtesy as the well-known public figures. That's what I like about Huck! He is so down to earth and very kind with a smile or laugh ready. My husband was just so amazed watching him relate to people.
