While fundraising at Chuck Norris’ Texas ranch following his second-place showing in South Carolina, Mike Huckabee hinted that Texas may be the pivotal state for his candidacy:
“Freshly bruised from a second-place finish in the South Carolina Republican primary, presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee told a gathering of Texas financial supporters Sunday that the GOP nomination may come down to the Lone Star State on March 4.
“By the time we get through Feb. 5, there still will not be a decisive winner,” said Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas. “I’m having to reach down deep and swallow my Arkansas pride, and it is taking everything in me to be able to say this, but, folks, Texas may just have to save this Arkansas boy and put us over the top in March of this year.”
I don’t know if Texas voters will make the difference for Huckabee’s campaign but I’m not surprised he’d like some Texas money.
