WASHINGTON — The pieces are coming together for a serious presidential run by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, another influential southern Republican said Thursday.
“It looks like things continue to fall in place,” former South Carolina Gov. David M. Beasley told The Huffington Post. “You know, like Haley Barbour getting out — another southern governor who could take votes.”
Beasley said that many of the operatives released by Barbour, the current governor of Mississippi, might be inclined to work for Huckabee.
