SUPER TUESDAY – Momentum Breaking for Huckabee?

Is Mike working with increased Momentum? He gave the speech of his life and won West Virginia’s GOP Convention on the 2nd ballot. Not only that but the last minute polls in the South are breaking for Huck as Mike is now tied with McCain in Georgia, and leads him in Tennessee and Alabama!

THIS COULD BE A HUGE DAY FOLKS!! Looks like I’ll be right here with ya though as I can’t seem to get a ride down to the Victory Party in Atlanta. That could still change but not likely with hours to go.

Polls close here in Georgia at 7 PM.

Mike Huckabee – "This Race Is tight!"

Mike Huckabee for President - Faith, Family, Freedom

We just finished a campaign event here in Arkansas. The crowd was great and very enthusiastic. Arkansas will lead the way for us tomorrow as we begin to add to our delegate count. Polls in Missouri, Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama also show this race too close to call. We are in the middle of the fight for the Republican nomination and our hopes are running high.

What we need to do tomorrow is turnout every Huckabee supporter we can. Last minute reminder calls and messages to voters are going to be critical. Every vote counts. To help fund this effort in Tennessee, Missouri, Georgia and Alabama we are relying on you to help us close the gap. We are $215,000 away from reaching our midnight goal of $1,000,000 for get out the vote efforts.

Will you make an immediate contribution of $25 or more?

Please help us reach our goal. I will make a final decision on how many reminder calls we will make tomorrow based on the financial resources we have available at midnight. Reaching our goal will give us the resources we need to win in the states we are targeting.

I am counting on you so please consider making a contribution immediately.

With the deepest gratitude,

Mike Huckabee

Mike Huckabee Signs Sessions’ Pledge

News Release: Mike Huckabee Signs Sessions’ Pledge To Secure America’s Borders

Former Arkansas Governor Vows to Make Immigration Reform a Top Priority as President

February 02, 2008

Montgomery, AL – Former Arkansas Governor and Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee today signed a campaign pledge, authored by U.S. Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL), demonstrating “his strong commitment to securing America’s borders as president.” (Click here to download the pledge – PDF)

“I appreciate Senator Sessions’ strong leadership on the critical issue of immigration reform and I share his resolve to make it a national priority when I am elected president,” said Huckabee, who has authored his own nine-point plan to secure America’s borders. Huckabee’s “Secure America Plan” is the most comprehensive of any put forth by a presidential candidate.

Campaigning in Alabama today, Huckabee said he joins with the two-term Alabama Senator in calling on the federal government, as well as other presidential candidates, to push for passage of important immigration measures such as border security, workplace verification and “no amnesty.”

The questionnaire, called “A Roadmap for Demonstrating Presidential Credibility on One of America’s Most Important Issues,” deals with five key areas, including securing the borders, ending the magnet at the workplace, enhancing state and local law enforcement, discouraging sanctuaries, and improving the legal immigration process.

Answering a host of questions dealing with the illegal immigration problem, Huckabee said, if elected president, he would secure the border including construction of the 700 mile southern border fence required by the Secure Fence Act, constructing more miles if needed, and keeping the National Guard on the border until it is secured.

Sessions, a member of the Senate Armed Services, Energy and Judiciary Committees, is a strong proponent of enhanced federal enforcement of the immigration laws of the United States. Huckabee says he also shared Sessions’ commitment to “confirming federal judges who follow the law and who do not legislate from the bench and his focus on reducing America’s dependence on foreign oil.”

Huckabee is scheduled to campaign in Georgia on Sunday, February 3, 2008 and in Tennessee and Arkansas on Monday, February 4.

POLLS – Huck leads GA, OK, MO, TN, & Tied With McCain in AL

with Super Tuesday looming right after Florida Mike Huckabee sees a key to success in the many Southern States that have their primaries that day. So how do we stand?

Georgia (Rasmussen):

Mike Huckabee – 34%
John McCain – 19%
Mitt Romney – 16%
Ron Paul – 12%
Rudy Giuliani – 11%

(Note the importance of this trend. The panhandle and the Northern part of Florida are said to be more politically aligned with Georgia. If this kind of margin can be met (or even larger) in those areas on Tuesday night we might have a great shot at a good showing in Florida which would strengthen our position elsewhere in the South)

Alabama (Rasmussen):

Mike Huckabee – 27%
John McCain – 27%
Mitt Romney – 15%
Rudy Giuliani – 8%
Ron Paul – 3%

Oklahoma:

Mike Huckabee – 30%
John McCain – 25%
Mitt Romney – 13%

Missouri (Rasmussen):

Mike Huckabee – 27%
John McCain – 26%
Mitt Romney – 18%
Rudy Giuliani – 7%
Ron Paul – 5%

Tennessee (Taken before Fred Dropped Out)
:

Fred Thompson – 25%
Mike Huckabee – 24%
John McCain – 12%
Mitt Romney – 7%
Rudy Giuliani/Ron Paul – 2%

Also voting on Super Tuesday in the south is Arkansas and West Virginia (convention where Mike will speak). Those are 7 states that Mike really needs to win and that we should focus on. There are a ton of delegates at stake in these. Also following that is Louisiana on Feb. 9th. In what may be a three-man race by that point sweeping the South will be important and would leave Mike in very good shape for Texas on March 4th which might be for all the marbles.
