Mike Huckabee said his quotes about Mitt Romney's career at Bain Capital were neither approved nor meant to be an endorsement.
Romney's Web video ad, "Huckabee," included comments from his radio show last week, when the conservative talk show host called on Republicans to stop criticizing Romney's work at Bain Capital
"This in no way is an endorsement of any candidate," the former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential candidate said in a statement that Newsmax
reported Monday night. "Any attempt by anyone to imply an endorsement of a candidate or opposition to a candidate is not true."
In the ad, Huckabee is quoted as saying, "They ought to know that, if downsizing can turn around a failing company, then at least it prevents all the jobs from being lost, and sets up a stronger company that can grow and start re-hiring.”
