ONE OUT AFTER IOWA CAUCUS, IS THERE MORE TO COME …
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee has suspended his presidential campaign to be president. Following a poor showing in the Iowa Caucus and a campaign that just never got off the ground. Huckabee managed to only get 2% of the vote. One has to wonder who else is next? All of the candidates that finished below 5% in Iowa might want to think about throwing in the towel.
Mike Huckabee suspended his bid for the Republican nomination, ending a second run that overshadowed by other candidates in the former Arkansas governor’s social-conservative lane.
Huckabee’s announcement concludes a campaign that was not nearly as prominent as his previous run at the Republican nomination in 2008, where he won eight states, including the Iowa caucus.
In 2016, Huckabee struggled to consistently stay on the main stage in Republican presidential debates, never raised more than $15 million at one time, and failed to rally the same evangelical support he won in his last presidential run. One of the most conspicuous blows to his campaign came when Bob Vander Plaats endorsed Sen. Ted Cruz, denying Huckabee a critical ally in the contest to win over Iowa’s evangelicals.
