Bad decision by Huckabee…..
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has written a lengthy letter urging conservatives to back U.S. Lamar Alexander’s bid for a third term.
Over four pages, released by the Alexander campaign, Huckabee praises the senior Tennessee senator profusely, sprinkling in sentences sure to please tea party and religious conservatives. Huckabee says that Alexander has opposed Obamacare, tried to “reverse the trend toward a national school board,” supported “the teaching of American history and civics” and “is not afraid to stand up to this administration.”
Ronald Reagan is mentioned four times, including in the first and last paragraphs.
Huckabee bolsters his Tennessee cred by mentioning that he won the state in the 2008 Republican primary. The crux of his pitch is a plea for small donations.
“I hope you will pray for Lamar, vote for Lamar, and fill out the enclosed envelope and send it back with a $10 or $15 [check] or whatever amount you can afford,” Huckabee urges.
