This is the biggest and most significant Saturday for the campaign since October.
First Mike Huckabee gave a rousing and quite passionate address to the Conservative Political Action Committee convention this morning. He was on fire and the crowd ate him up! At one point during his speech he took a page of the tax code, ripped it up, and tossed it like confetti! Stay tuned for video from the speech. There’s also a straw poll being conducted today so let’s see what happens.
If that wasn’t important enough, three states hold their contests today – Louisiana, Kansas, and Washington. KS and WA are caucuses and LA has a primary. The media and grassroots are reporting an extremely low turnout in Louisiana. 20 At Large delegates are up for grabs if someone can get over half of the votes today. With such a low turnout this is quite possible. Louisiana’s other delegates will be decided at their GOP convention next week.
Today we really find out where the race stands with John McCain and Mike Huckabee. I am predicting a win for Huck in both Kansas and Louisiana. I also believe Washington is possible. It could be a Saturday Sweep for Huck. if so we’ve got ourselves a ballgame.
Stay tuned for all the latest developments.
