Mike Huckabee on 2016 Run: ‘I’m Looking at It’

HuckabeeIn a Foxnews.com article, Howard Kurtz details what Fox host and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is thinking when it comes to a 2016 presidential run: he’s “looking at it.”

“I didn’t want any misinformation that I’ve told people I’m running—that’s not the case,” Huckabee told me yesterday. “I wanted to be honest and say, sure I’m looking at it.”

The article reveals the “Huckabee” host has already begun holding meetings with potential donors and supporters.

This is the second time Huckabee has been the subject of the “will he or won’t he” predictions game while at Fox News. In May 2011, an entire episode of “Huckabee” centered around his announcement on a potential 2012 run. He decided against running, telling his audience his “heart says no.”

If he decides to give it a go this time, Huckabee would have to give up his Fox News show once he took more serious steps to running, like forming an exploratory committee and raising money.
