Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee tells Newsmax that the contentious Republican primary battle has been a “disaster” that could harm the nominee’s chances of victory in November.

In an earlier Newsmax interview Huckabee — who sought the GOP presidential nomination in 2008 — predicted that the GOP primary would be a demolition derby, and he now says that is “definitely” what it has proven to be.

Story continues below video.




“It’s been vicious,” he says. “It’s one thing for the candidates to contrast with each other on the views and issues, but what’s happened in this primary is these guys have gone after each other on a personal level.

“They’ve attacked each other’s integrity, each other’s honor. Those are the scars that they’re going to have to carry into the fall and it’s not healthy.

“I feel it’s been a real disaster for the Republicans and that whoever emerges as the nominee is going to have a lot of commercials run against him by the Democrats with material that was provided by other Republicans, and that’s simply not a good thing.”

Asked if he would be happy if Mitt Romney wins the Republican nomination, Huckabee responds: “I’ll be happy with the GOP nominee whoever it is, including Mitt Romney, and I’m going to campaign for whoever our nominee is.”

Huckabee’s new radio program “The Mike Huckabee Show,” a daily three-hour talk show, will begin airing on April 2 on Cumulus Media Networks.
