Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee told National Journal today that he’s not worried about beating President Obama in the general election. It’s the Republican primaries that have him concerned.
“Having gone through the process before and knowing just what it entails, it’s not a decision I’ll make lightly,” Huckabee said. “If I did run, I do think I would have very significant strength going into it. The real question for me is do I get through the nomination process.”
Huckabee won the Iowa presidential caucus four years ago by a 9-point margin and eventually lost to John McCain for the Republican nomination. He has been rumored to be interested in another run, and polls well against Obama compared to many other potential GOP candidates.
