Huckabee on GOP Field: No 'Outright Liberal in the Whole Bunch'

By    |   Sunday, 29 March 2015 12:18 PM

Voters are more concerned with finding a candidate to restore their personal economic outlook than they are with how conservative the Republican Party is, expected GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee told "Face the Nation" on Sunday.

Huckabee told host Bob Schieffer he knows there will be a "big brouhaha" over which Republican candidate will be most conservative, but added, "there really isn't an outright liberal in the whole bunch."

There may be degrees of conservatism from policy to policy, he said, but, "compared to the current administration all of us are conservative."

Huckabee said voters don't care about the horizontal focus on who is more conservative, but on the what he termed the vertical focus on which candidate will pull them up out of their own economic circumstances.

"And they are a heck of lot more concerned about somebody getting this country, this economy, our world in upward direction than just to say that horizontally further to the right or moved further to the left," he said.

Huckabee said that although Washington says the economy is in recovery, many blue-collar workers tell him they don't see it in their personal situations.

"Folks out there are working hard, and I believe if we don't give people a sense of hope and optimism, first about their own economic situation then about the world that is on fire, it's going to be hard to get America back on track," he said.
