Huckabee Stays, For Now

For those who thought Mike Huckabee would be quick to jump ship after the exit by Mitt Romney, guess again.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s campaign said Thursday the former governor will continue his campaign for the Republican nomination even now that former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney has left the race.A spokeswoman for Huckabee said the campaign plans to “press forward.”“We know it’s an uphill climb, but we knew that a year ago when we announced,” said Kirsten Fedewa, a Huckabee spokeswoman.With Romney out of the race, Sen. John McCain (Ariz.) is considered by most to be the presumptive frontrunner.That said, Huckabee strung together an impressive slew of Southern victories on Super Tuesday, winning contests in his home state as well as West Virginia, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee.

Interesting stuff, this campaign by Huckabee. Heck, why shouldn’t he stay in? He won 5 states on Super Tuesday and only spent about 4 bucks. If he can keep that up, he’ll at least keep John McCain on his toes.That is, until he’s picked for the VEEP spot.
