Huck­abee plans an­nounce­ment

Los Angeles Times - - THE NATION - — Mark Z. Barabak

Inch­ing closer to a sec­ond try for pres­i­dent, Repub­li­can Mike Huck­abee said he would an­nounce his in­ten­tions next month in Hope, Ark., the home­town he shares with Pres­i­dent Clin­ton.

“I think it will be worth tun­ing in for,” Huck­abee, a for­mer Arkansas gover­nor and 2008 can­di­date, said in Fox News in­ter­view Fri­day. The event is sched­uled for May 5.

Ear­lier, speak­ing to re­porters in Wash­ing­ton, Huck­abee sig­naled his likely can­di­dacy, boasting of his con­tin­ued sup­port in ear­lyvot­ing Iowa and sug­gest­ing he was the best can­di­date to face the Demo­cratic fron­trun­ner, Hil­lary Rod­ham Clin­ton.

Huck­abee was a sur­prise win­ner of the 2008 Iowa cau­cuses, rid­ing a strong wave of sup­port among so­cially con­ser­va­tive vot­ers.
