Huckabee May Reveal White House Intentions Saturday

Friday, 13 May 2011 02:58 PM


WASHINGTON — Republican Mike Huckabee says he will have a "very important announcement" on Saturday, feeding speculation that he will either launch a run for his party's U.S. presidential nomination or rule himself out.

Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor who is riding high in some 2012 polls among Republicans, said on Friday on his radio show, "The Huckabee Report," that his listeners should tune in to his Fox News Channel television show for "a very important announcement coming this Saturday."

Huckabee has been wrestling over whether to launch a second run for his party's nomination — he lost to John McCain in 2008 — or stick with his Fox TV show, which he would have to give up if he became a candidate.

Republican strategist Ed Rollins, who managed Huckabee's 2008 campaign, said he does not know Huckabee's plans and that Huckabee has not been in touch with him about a 2012 campaign.

"My gut tells me he's not in," Rollins told Reuters.

President Barack Obama was far ahead of all possible Republican candidates in a Reuters/Ipsos poll this week.
