Gov. Huckabee announces Iowa & S.C. leadership teams, commands strong organizational support & infrastructure across key early states
Huckabee: "Team Huck will power our team through the key early states of Iowa and South Carolina."LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- Former Arkansas Governor and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee announced today on CNN's State of the Union his comprehensive Iowa and S.C. 'Team Huck' grassroots leadership organization, including members of the Des Moines Register's "50 Most Wanted Republicans" and The Iowa Republican's "Playmakers."
"We've built a comprehensive leadership organization and grassroots infrastructure, which is a powerful network of activists, local leaders, homeschoolers, pastors, veterans and ordinary American patriots that will power 'Team Huck' through the key early states of Iowa and South Carolina," said Gov. Huckabee.
Gov. Huckabee launched his campaign just over three months ago, and now has 71 County Chairs in Iowa. In 2008, Gov. Huckabee won the Iowa caucuses with more votes than any other Republican in Iowa caucus history after being outspent 10-1 by Gov. Mitt Romney. In South Carolina, where Huckabee finished a close second to John McCain in 2008, Gov. Huckabee has 32 county organizations, including 24 county chairs. The following are the details of his Iowa and S.C. leadership teams:
