News Release: Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee Offers Words of Comfort to Victims of the California Wildfires
October 25, 2007
Little Rock, AR – Presidential Candidate and Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has issued the following statement in response to the deadly wildfires in California:
“I offer my thoughts and prayers to the people affected by the fires in California and to the firefighters and volunteers who are risking their lives to fight the blaze. The images of flames devouring homes and wreaking havoc on people’s lives are just heart-breaking. I join President Bush and Gov. Schwarzenegger in reminding those who have been displaced that they are not alone and the people of this great country will do what we can to help them rebuild. This is an instance when government, both state and federal, should play a major role to assist the residents of the Golden State.”
I have family and many friends in Southern California. My thoughts and prayers are with them as well during this difficult time. God bless them all.
