Huckabee Ending Show, Considering Presidential Run

Politico reports that Mike Huckabee is ending his show on FOX News with the possibility of running for president in 2016.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee announced Saturday night that he would be ending his Fox News talk show to gauge support for a possible presidential campaign.

“There has been a great deal of speculation as to whether I would run for President,” Huckabee told his followers on Facebook. “I won’t make a decision about running until late in the spring of 2015, but the continued chatter has put Fox News into a position that is not fair to them.”

“I feel compelled to ascertain if the support exists strongly enough for another Presidential run. So as we say in television, stay tuned!” he added.

In the past, Huckabee’s always done well in Iowa.  This means he very well may be a thorn in the side of Jeb Bush.

Times have changed though.  The old game is being rejected by the grassroots and with new trailblazers ready to challenge that status quo, Huckabee is facing some different circumstances than he did in 2008.
