Huckabee Could Opt for Presidential Run by Summer

Monday, 28 Mar 2011 07:28 PM


CLINTON, Miss. — Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee says it will be at least this summer before he decides whether to run for president again, and he'll only enter the 2012 race if he thinks he can win.

Speaking Monday at the Baptist-affiliated Mississippi College in Clinton, Huckabee praised Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, another potential Republican candidate for the White House.

Huckabee called Barbour "maybe the most brilliant political strategist in America today." He says Barbour would be a strong presidential candidate because of good fundraising skills and national contacts.

Huckabee says he'd like to have Barbour as a campaign manager, if Barbour chooses not to run.

Barbour has been hiring consultants and traveling to early contest states such as Iowa and New Hampshire. He says he could announce a campaign in April.
