Why are they running or, at the very least, even thinking of running?
That is the question that must be asked regarding several potential Republican presidential candidates as the time to go fishing or cut bait for 2016 is directly upon us.
Mike Huckabee…a nice enough guy and the former Governor of Arkansas has announced that he intends to announce on May 5th but why? Why would he or SHOULD he be throwing HIS hat in the ring?
He ran in 2008…he came in 2nd…soooo…he has a chance in 2016? Well…no…not at all because that 2nd place finish was such a DISTANT 2nd place it’s almost as though he never ran at all. McCain, in 2008, the establishment choice garnered some 1,378 delegates to become the nominee while Huckabee only managed to scrape together a mere 240.
In 2012…Huckabee looked good in the pre-race polling but, declined to enter the race at all so…why NOW? Is he basing his 2016 run on a distant 2008 2nd place finish and a never ran at all 2012 election?
