Huckabee to Interview Romney on Fox

Politics makes strange bedfellows, an old saying goes. And it’s illustrated now by the news that Fox News’ Mike Huckabee will interview Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney on his show this weekend, as The New York Times reports.

Huckabee and Romney were pitched rivals in the 2008 presidential campaign, with former Arkansas Gov. Huckabee upsetting former Massachusetts Gov. Romney in the Iowa caucuses. Romney charged Huckabee with laxity on the death penalty.

And Huckabee queried in an interview whether Mormons believe “that Jesus and the devil are brothers.” Romney told his competitor, “You make up facts faster than you talk.”

But things are obviously patched up between them now. The interview will be taped Friday and shown on Fox Saturday and Sunday at 8 p.m. ET.

It’s unclear whether Huckabee will endorse Romney, which could help him greatly with conservative and Christian voters, especially in Iowa, which has shown strong affection for Huckabee.

The former Arkansas governor is unlikely to feel much love for Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Romney’s main rival at this point. In the 2008 election, Perry backed former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani instead of Huckabee. And Perry’s 2007 endorsement came at a time when Huckabee really could have used the support of a fellow southern governor.
