Mike Huckabee is inviting evangelical pastors from Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Nevada —  the early presidential primary states —  to join him on a 10-day tour to discover "the human instruments used by God to change the world’s history," the Christian Broadcast Network reported Friday.

CBN political blogger David Brody said the travel event is called "Reagan, Thatcher, Pope John Paul II Tour: God Raising Extraordinary Leaders for Extraordinary Times," and a video invitation went out to the pastors in those early primary states on Friday.

Story continues below video.



The 10-day tour will start after the last of the midterm elections in November, and include stops in Poland and London, and conclude in Los Angeles, CBN reported.

Brody noted that Huckabee, an ordained Southern Baptist minister and former Arkansas governor, is considering a possible run for the White House in 2016, and could be measuring his support among the pastors should he decide to launch a bid.

"Huckabee truly believes a spiritual awakening is needed in this country and that pastors must engage from the pulpit before it’s too late," Brody wrote.

There has been speculation since late last year Huckabee was interested in a possible presidential run, and he's made it a point of speaking with pastors in key states,
including South Carolina, where he visited with pastors in Greenville in May as part of his presidential bid exploration, the South Carolina State reported.

Huckabee's back in Columbia, S.C., Saturday to stump for Mike Campbell, who headed his 2008 GOP presidential bid and is now in a Republican runoff for lieutenant governor, the State reported.
