Huck PAC Takes Me Back
02-18-2009
When I saw this item over at New Hampshire Presidential Watch, for a moment it felt like we were back in the heat of the 2008 presidential campaign. Just as he did over at PolitickerNH and at the 2008 incarnation of his website, Cosmo highlights the tasty political tidbits you might otherwise miss.
 
Brian’s post notes the launch next week of a New Hampshire chapter of former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee’s Huck PAC. If you take a quick look at Huckabee’s website, you’ll learn the event here is part of a coordinated nationwide evening of house parties, clearly designed to expand Huckabee’s grassroots network of social conservatives.
 
We haven’t heard much from Huckabee since his post-election book tour, although he was briefly back in the news recently for calling the Obama Administration’s stimulus bill “anti-religious.” My guess is Huckabee will continue to quietly build his grassroots organization in advance of a potential 2012 presidential run. In the near term, the emphasis will likely be on using Huck PAC to back like-minded conservative candidates in the 2010 midterm elections, much as he did for Bob Clegg’s primary run for the NH-02 congressional seat. And there is always the weekend television gig on Fox News to keep him in the public eye.
