Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee has revealed to Newsmax that he is looking at a possible bid for the GOP presidential nomination  in 2016.

Asked in a Newsmax TV interview if he is considering another White House run, Huckabee declares: “Yeah, I’m not ruling it out at this point.

“I’m not sitting around having meetings with the strategic team, but it’s something I will certainly look at and I’m talking to some people just to determine whether it’s a kamikaze raid or whether it has potential and possibility.”

Gun Control: Was Harry Reid right to Reject It?

Huckabee, who was governor of Arkansas for more than a decade up until 2007, will be 61 by the time of the 2016 election.

He was generally seen as coming in third in the 2008 GOP primaries behind eventual winner John McCain and Mitt Romney. He won the first-in-the-nation Iowa caucuses and seven other states and got more delegates at the Republican National Convention than anyone apart from McCain.

But he decided to sit out the 2012 presidential race despite several polls saying he would be among the front-runners to take the nomination. “All the factors say ‘go’, but my heart says ‘no’,” he said.
