Huckabee heading over to Barbour's for barbeque?

Huckabee releasing S.C. team

April 27, 2011 By donehuedirectstaff

We’ve been told that former Ark. Gov. Mike Huckabee, a rumored candidate for the Republican presidential nomination, is giving his former S.C. supporters the nod to seek work on other presidential campaigns. The word is that he’s told South Carolina staffers that they have his blessing for them to peddle their wares elsewhere. If this is as true as it appears, it’s the second major shakeup. Monday, Miss. Gov. Haley Barbour surprised everyone but himself when he announced that he would not seek the GOP nod.

It also means that two Southerners that were considered major contenders are gone from consideration. Huckabee had a strong effort in South Carolina during the last run, and would have been a favorite to win the primary if he had fully committed to a run. Barbour has good credentials from his period as governor, and enough political and monetary connections to win as well, but he decided the time wasn’t right for him.

So, how does that affect the playing field here? Obviously, U.S. Rep. Newt Gingrich is the presumptive No. 1, in that he has a record and the money and the organization to outlast most other candidates. And in therms of how we see the race right now, Donald Trump rises to second. U.S. Rep. Michele Bachmann and former U.S. Sen. Rick Santorum are also moving up the chart.

Now, we’re beginning to get to an uncomfortable examination of the Republican field. Coming off tea party excitement and the 2010 wins, there is a paltry amount of what any nonpartisan person would call serious candidates. Part of the reason is the nature of the campaign at this point. There hasn’t been a lot put into building the physical manifestation of the campaigns — renting office space, hiring staff and buying media. Most of what’s happening now is earned media, and the support of a candidate requires nothing more than liking what you just heard on television.

When the going gets tough, we’ll see whether Trump, Bachmann and Santorum can step up with serious efforts. Whether they can get people waking up early on Saturday mornings to go to rallies, knock on doors and man phone banks. Whether they can raise the money to compete. Because if the bloom comes off the rose around December, the people committed to winning and not saying pithy things on cable television are going to be in a good position.

Romney might just lock this thing up before the end of the summer.

Reports Of Mike Huckabee's Demise In South Carolina End Up Supporting Idea He Will Actually Run
First Posted: 04/27/11 06:56 PM ET Updated: 04/27/11 07:07 PM ET

WASHINGTON –- A South Carolina political blog reported Wednesday that former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee had decided not to run for president in 2012, drawing howls of protest from the Huckabee camp.

A Huckabee spokesman called the report “absolutely ridiculous.”

“Governor Huckabee’s the front runner, so we expect a certain level of unfounded rumors and accusations lobbed our way. But this is just getting comical,” said Hogan Gidley, director of Huckabee’s political action committee.

But Gidley also said that a decision has not been made yet, despite the fact that one source told The Huffington Post that Huckabee is hiring up for a campaign to be run by Ed Rollins, the former governor’s 2008 national campaign chairman. The source told HuffPost that a Huckabee run for the White House is a done deal, but Gidley insisted that was not true.

“The governor’s been clear. He is seriously considering a run for president. He is the frontrunner. He is consistently in the lead in the polls. But he is not going to make his decision until this summer, and that has not changed,” Gidley told HuffPost.

Rollins himself has said that June 1 is the drop dead final date by which a decision must be made, and that he expects Huckabee to run.

The report in South Carolina, that Huckabee was releasing his political operatives in the state to allow them to work for other candidates, came from a political operator and blogger named Wes Donehue. During the 2008 campaign, Donehue was linked to a website attacking then-Presidential candidate and former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson. Donehue was also involved in the 2010 flap over whether Gov. Nikki Haley -– then a candidate for the office -– had had an extramarital affair.

Donehue’s report set off a firestorm of activity and prompted a response from rival blogger Will Folks. Erick Erickson, the founder of the conservative site RedState.com, also tweeted a link to Donehue’s post with the message: “How I know Huckabee is out.”

But the import of what is happening in the Palmetto State, if it is true that Huckabee is setting potential campaign workers free, may be that he is letting them go in order to instead snatch up operatives who were working for Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour until his decision Monday not to run. Scott Reed, a Washington-based consultant who was running Barbour’s operation, told HuffPost that he had assembled a national network of 50 operatives spread across five early primary voting states who are all now available and ready to work.

An Arkansas-based blog, The Tolbert Report, picked up on this possibility later in the day.
