MH – "Important Kansas Caucus Win"

Mike Huckabee for President - Faith, Family, Freedom

Today’s big Kansas Caucus win reaffirms that we are working hard for the nomination.

I’m delighted that the good people of Kansas honored me with their vote. They, like people in 26 other states who were not part of Super Tuesday, deserve to have their voice heard — and I am grateful for their support.

The voters of Kansas spoke today and said loudly and clearly that I am the authentic conservative in the race.

It was a big win that would not have been possible without your support. Over 1,500 Rangers made 28,000 calls into Kansas contacting supporters and turning them out to vote. Thank you!

Now lets turn our focus towards the Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia as we head into the Potomac primaries on Tuesday.

Here is what I need from you this afternoon:

1. Make lists of everyone you know in these states and send them an email asking them to vote for our campaign. If they are undecided please tell them to visit our campaign website to learn more about the issues we are fighting for and the kind of grassroots team we have assembled.

If you don’t know anyone living in the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia please email or phone people you know nationwide that support my campaign and ask them to get more involved. We need more volunteers, new contributors, and new supporters. Friends contacting friends and convincing them to participate is the secret to our success.

2. If you are a Ranger please email your friends and family and ask them to contribute towards the amount you pledged to raise. If you have already raised what you pledged, please consider boosting your goal. Rangers helped raise over $168,000 since Tuesday, but to compete effectively, over the next days we will need to double and triple that amount.

If you aren’t a Ranger please consider signing up today.

3. Make an immediate contribution of $25 or more today. I’m headed into a meeting with my campaign team now to review our resources and determine just what we need to propel our efforts in these next key states. I’ll drop you a note later today with a summary of our discussion. In the meantime, if at all possible, please make an immediate contribution today.

Our win today in Kansas was important. We are stronger, faster and most important, we are together.

With deep gratitude,

Mike Huckabee

First Results Coming In From Kansas

We’ve got early results from the Kansas GOP Caucus:

The Republicans filled the benches of the third floor courtroom in the county courthouse to give Huckabee 34 votes, Ambassador Alan Keyes 1; Sen. John McCain 19; and Texas Congressman Ron Paul 9. One voter marked a ballot as uncommitted.

The results were to be sent to state headquarters later Saturday for an official tally.

A Significant Saturday

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.

Huck’s Army – "They’ve Underestimated Him Before…"

February 8, 2008

Lucas Roebuck
Public Affairs,

“They have underestimated him before…”
HUCKABEE GRASSROOTS brings the fight to KANSAS, LOUISIANA and beyond

Many roads lead to Huckabee victory — all possible through a groundswell of grassroots support


WICHITA, Kan. — Calls are being made, signs being distributed, and rallies being attended as Huck’s Army troops join a groundswell of grassroots support for Gov. Mike Huckabee in the Sunflower State.

“We saw the how the grassroots efforts of Huckabee supporters stacked up in states like Tennessee, Georgia and Alabama,” said David Schmidt, National Grassroots Campaign Manager for “We are taking the fight to Kansas and Louisiana on Saturday.”

“Kansas is the heartland of America, good people, values voters,” said Lucas Roebuck, Public Affairs Officer for “Social conservatives and moral voters will give Huckabee a boost.”

Roebuck said Huckabee could do well in Louisiana also, particularly because when he was governor, he committed full state resources to helping the Hurricane Katrina evacuees from Arkansas’ neighbor to the south.

“As a journalist in Arkansas at the time, I covered the open arms of friendship and support Arkansas gave to Louisiana evacuees of all social, racial and economic groups,” Roebuck said. “Huckabee mobilized the resources of the government, the private sector and churches quickly. He didn’t wait for the bureaucracy. He used the power of his office to make things happen.”

The Kansas Right to Life organization, Kansans for Life, endorsed Mike Huckbaee this week, as did Christian leader Dr. James Dobson. The Dobson’s endorsement solidifies Huckabee as the standard bearer for social conservatives and value voters.

Candidates are competing to win delegates from a pool of 2,381 delegates. Just over 1,200 have been allocated, leaving around 1,100 up for grabs. Mitt Romney, who has suspended his campaign, will have 281 delegates to release at the GOP Convention. Huckabee will have to win around 900 of those to lock up the election, but far fewer to force a brokered convention.

With core values of faith, family and freedom, is an online grassroots movement not owned or operated by any candidate or political campaign. With more than 17,000 recruits, is dedicated to mobilize support for candidates who honor God and country.

Huckabee wraps up Kansans for Life backing

On the heels of his visit to Kansas Friday, Mike Huckabee grabbed a key endorsement today from the state’s largest anti-abortion group.

In its announcement, Kansans for Life political committee director Christine Ostroski urged members to get out to Saturday’s presidential caucuses.

“As governor, Mike Huckabee had the kind of pro-life record that Kansans envy,” said Ostroski. “While we’ve been labeled the late-term abortion capitol of America, our neighbors in Arkansas had Governor Huckabee fighting for everything from a ban on human cloning to pro-life license plates.

“His record is outstanding.”

Huckabee once said, famously, “I have no desire to throw women in jail, I just want to stop throwing babies in the garbage.”
