  • Huckabee and Santorum-down in the polls but definitely not out.

    The Iowa Republican ^ | November 23, 2015 | Craig Robinson
    It's been said to me a number of times from Republican activists of every stripe. Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum, both former Iowa caucus winners, just don't have it this time around, and thus, they should take the cue and get out of the Republican race for president. In the poll-driven presidential campaign that has also been overly nationalized, I completely understand why this sort of thinking is prevalent in Iowa less than three months before people will head out to caucus. While the size of the Republican field has been reduced, it's still large and cumbersome. And after watching...

    GOP presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is calling on Congress to stop President Obama’s plan to bring more Syrian refugees to the U.S. in light of the recent terrorist attack in Paris by a member of ISIS who had embedded in the refugee program. “Speaker Ryan needs to step down today and let someone else lead if he will not act to stop the flow of terrorists to America,” Huckabee stated in a press release, in which he criticized President Obama’s recent comments following the massacre in Paris.

Mike Huckabee (R-AR) took a dig at his opponent Dr. Ben Carson, who is under scrutiny amid the suggestion of discrepancies in the details of his past. Co-host Mika Brzezinski asked, “So just curious, I mentioned Ben Carson because we’ve focused a lot on him this morning and some of the discrepancies that have come out of his memoir. I’m wondering if any of the books you’ve written were put under the same scrutiny, would they find voids and holes and does that matter in terms of character and honesty?”...

Corey Lewandowski, the campaign manager for frontrunner Donald Trump, confirmed to Breitbart News via phone on Sunday that the “biggest consensus” of five separate points the GOP campaigns agreed on was cutting the RNC out of the negotiations with the networks, as the campaigns would each like to negotiate with the networks directly.

    The conservative group American Christian Voting Guide has ranked many of the current Republican and Democrat presidential candidates according to their supposed biblical qualifications, and graded former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee an "A," while Donald Trump was given an "F." The list, put together by Rev. Steven Andrew, pastor of USA Christian Church, claimed that only four of the candidates would be biblically qualified to serve as president. Ranking the candidates on criteria such as truthfulness, hating covetousness, protecting "God-given rights," fearing God and protecting Christian religious liberty, the guide gave Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, and Rand Paul B-grades, and...

Only Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who exited the 2016 race a few days later, spoke less.

Speaking in Iowa Wednesday, the Democratic presidential hopeful said Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was "treated as she should have been treated." Davis spent five days in jail for defying a court order and refusing to license gay marriages. Several Republican presidential candidates have vocally defended Davis, including former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz....

Scott Walker leaves only four truly competitive candidates for the Iowa Caucuses on Feb. 1: Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), Donald Trump, Ben Carson and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Cruz has the strongest ground game of that group and is the best-funded. Carson is better organized than most realize, but has an unproven team and is an unproven candidate.

But Cruz, who frequently touts the long-term durability of his campaign, is underscoring the effort with two caveats: Ramping up doesn't mean going on a spending spree, and building a state-level organization doesn't mean coasting off short-term momentum. "We have been very, very cautious with our expenditure of funds. This is an exceptionally frugal campaign," Cruz told reporters Saturday morning before opening...

    Among the Republican presidential candidates, Mike Huckabee and Ted Cruz have stood out as the two most ardent defenders of Kentucky clerk Kim Davis, who was recently jailed after refusing to issue same-sex marriage licenses in her jurisdiction. The two conservatives made a point to travel down to the Carter County Detention Center on Tuesday to join protesters in support of Davis, but the plans changed slightly when a judge ordered her immediate release. And then comes the following doozy from the New York Times write-up of this afternoons Kim Davis Release Extravaganza (emphasis ours): "The rally Tuesday had been...

    Chris Christie was on FOX and Friends Monday morning. He mocked Ted Cruz and Mike Huckabee for their support of jailed Christian Court Clerk Kim Davis. Both Cruz and Huckabee will attend a protest outside the Rowan County jail on Monday. Quite frankly I dont think you should grandstand on this stuff. This is a serious issue. I dont know if shes looking forward to a visit from Senator Cruz, or not. Well see. But the fact is, I dont think he should grandstand on this.

    LOUISVILLE, KY. Presidential candidate and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee will join protesters at a Tuesday rally outside the jail where a Kentucky clerk is locked in a cell over her refusal to issue marriage licenses to gay couples. Huckabee plans a private meeting with Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis, who was jailed by a federal judge Thursday after defying several court orders. Her lawyers spent Labor Day weekend filing appeals in an effort to force her release, but she remains there on a contempt charge. Huckabee, a former Baptist minister who often reaches out to religious conservatives, says...

    Republican presidential candidate former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said on Friday during an appearance on Fox News that serial killers got better treatment by the American justice system than the Kentucky county clerk who was jailed for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples. Huckabee has been one of the most vocal presidential candidates to defend Rowan County, Kentucky clerk Kim Davis after she was jailed Thursday on contempt of federal court. The ex-governor brought up the comparison to serial killers during an interview on Fox's "America's Newsroom." "Jeffery Dahmer got bail, the Boston Stranger got bail, John Wayne...

    Gov Huckabee interview on ABC News HUCKABEE: I think its -- again, its a very different equation altogether because this is a redefinition. Marriage is not defined in the federal Constitution at all; its a matter for the states. And applying the Fourteenth Amendment to the equality of men and women and their relationship in marriage is totally different than redefining marriage. And I think what weve seen here is the overreach of the judiciary. This, if allowed to stand without any congressional approval, without any kind of enabling legislation, is what Jefferson warned us about. Thats judicial tyranny. STEPHANOPOULOS:...

    Grayson, KY – Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, will join supporters at a rally outside the Carter County Detention Center on Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. ET.  The “I’m with Kim” Rally is organized by Gov. Mike Huckabee. Liberty Counsel is willing to join any group that stands in support of Kim Davis. “Not long ago 75 percent of Kentuckians passed the state’s marriage amendment. Today a Christian is imprisoned for believing what the voters affirmed, that marriage is between a man and a woman,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “Five people on the...

    No matter where you stand on this, can we come together for a moment and acknowledge the plain truth of this point by Dan McLaughlin? If elected Democrat Kim Davis was doing this to the death penalty, drug or immigration laws, or voter ID laws, they'd hail her as a hero.— Dan McLaughlin (@baseballcrank) September 2, 2015 It’s not that she refuses to perform her public duties that has left-wing critics exercised, it’s that she refuses to performs these specific duties. As it is, TNR’s demanding that Davis be thrown in jail — not just fined or fired, but...

    Washington (CNN) CNN is amending the criteria for its Republican presidential debate on September 16, possibly opening the door for Carly Fiorina to join the other top-tier candidates on the stage. The cause: a lack of national public polling following the August 6 debate has so far provided only three new polls to determine the lineup for the Reagan Presidential Debate, according to a CNN statement. As a result, CNN reevaluated its criteria and decided to add a provision that better reflects the state of the race since the first Republican presidential debate in August, the network announced Tuesday. Now,...

    Tonight, Public Policy Polling gave the Rachel Maddow Show a sneak peek at their results of their August 28-30 poll to be released tomorrow. While the findings at the top of the poll are what we've come to expect from the Republican field - Donald Trump and Ben Carson - securing the top spots - what is more surprising is to find beltway-favored candidates Chris Christie and Rand Paul floundering at the bottom with barely any support. The poll also shows the tea party character of the Republican Party, with strong birther views and a dubious grasp of some key...

    Two years ago, Trump met with immigration activists who told them their stories and asked for his support on immigration. "You convinced me" Trump said as the meeting ended.
