The following is a Mike Huckabee campaign press release about his Iowa operations:

Press Release: Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee Announces the Formation of Legislators for Huckabee Advisory Committee in Iowa

October 03, 2007

Des Moines, IA – The presidential campaign of former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) announced today the formation of the Legislators for Huckabee Advisory Committee. The committee will be co-chaired by three respected members of the Iowa General Assembly.

State Sen. David Hartsuch, R-Bettendorf, will be joined by state Reps. Carmine Boal, R-Ankeny, and Dwayne Alons, R-Hull, as the co-chairs of the Legislators for Huckabee Advisory Committee. The committee will work to recruit other state legislators to support Governor Huckabee for president as well as advise the governor on Iowa specific issues and important legislation at the state level.

“I won my contest against an 18-year incumbent by 71 votes because I worked hard and I recognized the importance of working hard for every single vote. Mike Huckabee shares that approach to winning elections. His record of election success in a Democratic state, the fact he has more executive experience than any other candidate in the race and his accomplishments in the areas of education, health care, infrastructure and tax reduction have convinced me that he has what it takes to succeed here in Iowa and in next year’s general election,” Hartsuch said.

“It is my pleasure and honor to offer my endorsement and support to Governor Mike Huckabee. His executive experience, principled leadership and conservative values are exactly what this country is looking for in its next president. I am excited to be part of his campaign,” said Boal.

“Governor Huckabee is a leader of the highest caliber. His 10 ½ years as Governor of Arkansas were a textbook example of good governance. Governor Huckabee has a long and balanced record of fiscal responsibility and social conservatism that will serve him well as the President of the United States,” Alons said.

Huckabee said he is "honored to have received the support of these wonderful individuals."

"Their commitment to our shared values and beliefs and their commitment to their constituents and the state of Iowa have earned them all strong, well-deserved reputations of being pro-life, pro-family, and pro-taxpayer throughout the state. I look forward to working with them in the coming months and utilizing their expertise as I prepare for the Iowa caucuses,” he added.

After his strong second place finish at the Iowa Straw Poll on Aug. 11, Huckabee’s poll numbers have risen to 14 percent in Iowa and he recently won the Values Voters Straw Poll with 63 percent of the vote

Pretty depressing numbers for Huckabee. Maybe he will tax his supporters, since thats all he knew how to do whenever there was a budget shortfall in Arkansas! He's no conservative and its quite obvious prospective donors see that!

The folks over at have the scoop on Huckabee's situation. The Huffington Post wrote that others in Arkansas see Huckabee coming to a realization that its all over...

BDBopper said... why hasn't he packed it in yet? Why did he just start a huge nationwide volunteer drive? Why did he hold a fundraiser yesterday that raised a Grand? Mike's numbers in the polls are rising and he raised 31 percent more the 3rd quarter over the 2nd Quarter. The only other candidate to raise more this quarter is Ron Paul and he is not a major candidate yet, regardless of my high respect for him (the only two I respect in this race are Paul and Huckabee since none of them speak the words coming from an advisor).
