Huckabee Starts A New PAC

More

Former Arkansas Gov. and Republican first runner-up Mike Huckabee has created a new political action committee to help Republicans and provide a vehicle for him to stay active in national politics. Huck-PAC -- could it really be called anything else -- asks supporters to contribute to the congressional campaign of NH State Sen. Bob Clegg, the re-election campaign of Rep. John Linder, and the re-election campaign of AR State Sen. Gilbert Baker. The site also contains a blog. Mr. Huckabee has chosen this tax day to tout the merits of the Fair Tax.

Per the PAC announcement, here's Huck:

"During the course of our campaign, we saw something happen that went beyond the campaign for President. It was a COMMUNITY that was devoted to a CAUSE that is bigger than any of us and not just about the next election, but the next generation. Our goal is to secure a better future for our country by changing our punitive tax system, standing firm for the sanctity of life and traditional marriage, and protecting our borders and giving our veterans the blood-bought benefits they deserve. We launch the new website today as we formally push the lift-off button for HUCK-PAC, which will enable us to help Senator McCain become our next President, and to assist conservative, pro-life and pro-family candidates to Senate and House seats. The website will not only preserve our online community, but enlarge it and encourage it to be a force for freedom, faith, and family!" Huckabee said today.


Huckabee stated, "the PAC is founded on the principles that make America great: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness. And because we believe our Republican Party embodies these ideas and is best suited to lead America forward, we are committed to supporting Republican candidates nationwide."

Sarah Huckabee will be the public face of the PAC.
