HUCKABEE GRASSROOTS brings the fight to KANSAS, LOUISIANA and beyond
Many roads lead to Huckabee victory — all possible through a groundswell of grassroots support
KANSAS RIGHT TO LIFE ENDORSES HUCKABEE
DOBSON’S ENDORSEMENT SOLIDIFIES VALUE VOTER 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 HucksArmy.com. “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 HucksArmy.com. “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.
