The chairman of the Republican Party of Iowa said that former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee can’t wait much longer to decide if he plans to run for the Republican presidential nomination, the Des Moines Register reported.
Matt Strawn said that other potential candidates are making headway in the state that holds one of the first primaries in the country next year.
“It may be tough to reassemble that coalition he had at least from leadership perspective because as everybody knows here in Iowa that it is a very retail heavy process with about 1,800 precincts where you need somebody organizing in those precincts,” Strawn said.
“So even though Governor Huckabee starts with a little bit more of a head start than he did four years ago introducing himself to Iowans, I don’t think he can’t put of a decision that much longer because we’re seeing all these other campaigns really start to organize, start to have town hall meetings, start to sign up county leaders and precinct chairs.”
Strawn has told the newspaper that he hasn’t spoken with Huckabee or anyone from his staff.
