Well, Mike Huckabee has not had a good couple of days. First, came the Cayman Islands
speech making jaunt. Then there was the nasty rejoinder
to Mitt Romney’s endorsement (and to Romney himself) followed by the defensive press release yesterday declaring: “I know all about the rumors swirling around. [Ed
: What rumors?
] That’s why I just went on national news show this afternoon, to knock those rumors down. I am still in this race. As I have said all along, I am in this race until someone gets to 1,191 delegates. That has not happened yet, and so I will keep campaigning for the Republican nomination. Period. That’s my ironclad commitment to my supporters.” Next came the fundraising letter
pleading for more money to continue the fight. (“Before we get to a brokered convention however we will need to win Texas and seize the momentum. For this to happen however, we must have your immediate financial support. We are laying it all on the field in Texas and we need you to join us.”)
So far he is not impressing pundits
or making more conservative
friends. But he apparently is trying to make the most of his financial opportunities.
