Gov. Mike Huckabee should receive a slight boost from the endorsement he has just gotten from Duncan Hunter and a few votes as well. While Huckabee works through some financial snags on his path to the nomination the loyal Duncan Hunter supporters could be the boost this campaign needs. Below is Hunter’s statement as reported by “the swamp” blog http://www.swamppolitics.com/news/politics/blog/
“I got to know Governor Huckabee well on the campaign trail. Of the remaining candidates I feel that he is strongly committed to strengthening national defense, constructing the border fence and meeting the challenge of China’s emergence as a military superpower that is taking large portions of America’s industrial base.
"Along with these issues of national security, border enforcement and protecting the U.S. industrial base, I see another quality of Mike Huckabee’s candidacy that compels my endorsement. Mike Huckabee is a man of outstanding character and integrity. I saw that character over the last year of campaigning and was greatly impressed. The other Republican candidates have many strengths and I wish them all well. My personal choice is Mike Huckabee."
