The following is an urgent message from Governor Mike Huckabee:
As we head to the final laps of the 2008 races, we need to kick in to high gear for the candidates who will help bring principled government from the White House to the state house with our shared commitment to the sanctity of life, the Fair Tax, respect of the traditional family, and responsible and honest government.
I don’t mind asking for your help because it doesn’t benefit me personally. When we launched HuckPAC, I decided that I wouldn’t take any compensation from it but would earn all my income in private sector endeavors such as speaking, writing, and doing commentary for the Fox News Channel. I wanted to make sure that critics didn’t think I created HuckPAC for personal gain. Frankly, it would be easier for me to not have the responsibilities of HuckPAC and simply spend more time either at home or doing things that did benefit my own family. But Janet and I launched into the shark infested waters of politics almost 18 years ago to be “salt and light” in a decaying and dark world and there’s no reason to turn back now.
I’m actually writing this on yet another plane on another early morning flight toward another long day. I left Little Rock Tuesday night after doing Hannity and Colmes and flew to Orlando for a Wednesday morning speech. Then flew to Washington, D. C. for a music education event before participating in “DC’s Funniest Celebrities,” a fund raising event that helps provide music education for children with disabilities. (By the way, I won the event of about a dozen people doing stand-up routines at the Improv). I’m now flying to Springfield, Missouri for an event for a pro-life group. Tomorrow, I will go to Oregon to speak to a men’s conference. Saturday, I’ll speak in Monterey, California and then go to Los Angeles for a church speaking event to discuss the importance of marriage and Proposition 8 (CA marriage amendment). Then Sunday night, I fly to Atlanta where I’ll guest host for radio talk show host, friend, and Fair Tax book author Neil Boortz. Then it’s on to South Carolina for candidate events Monday night and then to North Carolina Tuesday to help more candidates before finally getting back home Wednesday-8 days and two coast to coast trips later.
I’m not telling you that schedule to make you tired or sympathetic, but to let you know that we are not sitting on your contributions to HuckPAC, but using them.
Travel costs are up significantly due to fuel prices and I’m sure you have noticed the improvements in our website, which will get even better in the coming weeks.
I don’t often make such direct appeals, but as I was standing in line for coffee at 5:30 this morning trying to wake up, it occurred to me that the cost of the coffee each day for a month would be more than $50 in a month. Just the coffee. Surely my HuckPAC team could give that much to wake up America as we spend to wake up ourselves!
Or you call mail it in:
P. O. 2008
Little Rock, AR 72203
There were only a few made, so when they are gone, that’s it.
I hope to hear from you today!
God bless and keep the faith!
