LITTLE ROCK, Ark.- Former Arkansas Governor and 2016 GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee announced his North Carolina leadership team today, which includes U.S. Representative Charles Taylor. The Washington Post reported that Huckabee is building a "southern firewall".

Mike Huckabee's conservative record as a successful Governor proves he has the values, conviction and leadership to do just that. There are plenty of candidates that talk the talk, but Governor Huckabee walks the walk," said Pastor Mark Harris, Huckabee for President North Carolina State Chair.
Gov. Huckabee also released the following statement:
"North Carolina is a key plank to our campaign strategy, and I'm energized by the groundswell of conservative support we have across the Tar Heel State. Brick by brick, we have a strong grassroots team that is swelling across the country that will power us through the Republican primary."
