According to the interview below, Huckabee says that there are plenty of people asking him with ‘conviction’ to run for president:
One of the things Huckabee has going for him is name recognition, so he won’t have to overcome that hurdle. And if for some reason he became the nominee, something tells me that more conservatives would vote for him than they did Romney in 2012. Sure, some may stay home, but my guess is most wouldn’t find him as bad a choice as Romney.
But Huckabee is no Ted Cruz, Allen West, or Mike Pence. He’s not even a Rick Perry. So honestly I don’t see how he gets the nomination considering the potential we have for awesome candidates this time around.
