THE PRESIDENCY AND CONGRESS
MIKE HUCKABEE KEEPS ON GOING
TWO INCUMBENTS LOST IN
Mike Huckabee has won more actual primary elections than any Republican other than John McCain. Mitt Romney did win more caucus states where he could use his vast wealth to bus in delegates, but that is why he dropped out of the race. Romney won only two actual primaries and he had an overall favorable rating of -24. (Yes, that is minus 24 points.) Most voters viewed him as contrived and phony. But, Mitt Romney spent over $100 million dollars sapping votes from Mike Huckabee. The real conservative, the real 21st century thinker is Mike Huckabee and that is why he outlasted the other candidates.
On Super Tuesday night I was at Mike Huckabee’s headquarters at the
At about nine o’clock, individuals close to the campaign including myself were escorted onto the stage in preparation for a statement by Gov. Huckabee. When he came onto the stage the crowd went wild shouting “Mike is back, Mike is back.” It took some time before Mike Huckabee was able to settle down those gathered and make his statement.

In the middle of the presidential primary people forget that there are other candidates on the ballot. In

Congressman Gilchrest, the Republican, voted with Democrats more often than with his own party, and his constituents had enough. Groups such as the Club for Growth spent nearly $1 million to dump him. He did not vote with social conservatives and I am glad to see him go. Wynn, the Democrat, had the opposite problem, having sided with business more often than with his left-wing constituency. More goes on than just the presidential race, and GING-PAC will be involved
One of the upcoming races that is important to us is in
Our candidate in the race is my old friend, former state legislator Woody Jenkins. Woody was cheated out of a US Senate seat by current Senator Mary Landrieu in an election in which van loads of Democrats went from polling place to polling place to vote over and over again using the names of the dead. The election was shamefully dishonest.
As a legislator Woody Jenkins authored more than 300 major bills including one to protect home schoolers and deregulate state control of private schools. He is a pro-life champion!
There are now 29 Republican congressmen who have either outright resigned or announced that they will not run for reelection this year. (This includes Bobby Jindal who resigned to become governor of
Slowly but surely, we are replacing “moderate” Republicans in Congress who do not vote with social conservatives and we are replacing them with men like Woody Jenkins. In December GING-PAC won two major victories in special congressional elections by helping to elect Rob Wittman in
