Huckabee Prepping for 2012 Bid

Just days after officially dropping out of the race for the Republican presidential nomination, Mike Huckabee is already making plans for a possible run for the White House in 2012.

“We want to stay in touch and start now building a platform to continue addressing issues that brought us together in the first place,” Huckabee said in an e-mail to supporters on Wednesday.

“We will keep our Web site up and as we transition, will want to create a way to keep in touch and continue the battle for our families, our freedom, and our future.”

Huckabee intends to use as a model Ronald Reagan’s efforts following his failed run in 1976 and leading up to his success in 1980, the Washington Post reports.

He plans to help GOP nominee John McCain and Republican congressional candidates gain support among conservative Christians for the November elections, “while looking for a national radio show or other forum that he can use to expand his influence within the party,” according to the Post.

Huckabee’s daughter Sarah, his national field director, said she could easily see her father running for president again in 2012.

“He’s a young guy,” she said. “We learned a lot over the last few years. A lot depends on what happens in 2008, but if there’s an opportunity and he felt it was a good time to do it, I think he would.”

Meanwhile Huckabee said he doubts McCain will offer him the vice presidential slot, but he hasn’t denied interest in the job.
