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.
