Huckabee looks south after third place in Michigan


Mike Huckabee was quick to put his distant third place in Michigan behind him and look forward to Saturday’s race in South Carolina.

He told his supporters: “It looks like I won Iowa, John McCain won New Hampshire, Mitt Romney won Michigan. Ladies and Gentlemen, we are going to win South Carolina.”

Huckabee got off to a good start in the Mid-West state of Iowa before Michigan and New Hampshire, two northern states, slowed his progress.

Huckabee has every reason to feel confident about heading south. After all, a southern Baptist preacher has every chance of doing well in a southern, Christian, conservative state.

As many as half of those expected to vote in South Carolina are so-called “values voters”.

Huckabee’s calls for constitutional amendments to ban abortion and gay marriage may well strike a chord.
