  A Dark Horse Gets Darker

Wow, Huckabee's fundraising totals are really bad (via kos). Only $300,000 cash on hand.
Mr. Huckabee said his collections so far are enough to finance a shoestring campaign with a dozen staffers that is focused intensively on the early 2008 contests in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina. "We’re running a very spartan operation," Mr Huckabee said. He acknowledged that upcoming Republican presidential debates beginning in May and this summer’s Iowa "straw poll" would be critical in determining his viability in the race, but expressed satisfaction with the response he’s getting from campaign audiences thus far. "I’m coming away from events with people signing on the dotted line" to offer support, the former governor explained.

"If we get to the point where we can’t buy the plane ticket to Des Moines," he added, "I’d say, 'Pull the plug and put this thing to bed.'"
As Markos notes, the NRSC might try to encourage him to pull the plug sooner rather than later, if they think they can get him into the race against Pryor.

So far, it looks like nothing has come of the Council for National Policy's deliberations about whether to try to organize conservative support behind Huckabee. At this point, Gingrich and Thompson have to appear as the most viable conservative candidates. Not looking good for the Huckster - or for Sam Brownback, for that matter.

Hey, I don't care - I LIKE MIKE! and I'm continuing to donate to his campaign.

So there! (Now, if you, and you, and you .... do it too - well, now, Mike's fortune shall change, eh?)

Only Huckabee and Gravel are giving the public the truth about the tax system. And, I believe, that ONLY THEY will deliver on their promise.
