The day after former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee quit his job at Fox News to explore running for president on the Republican ticket, talk show host Laura Ingraham said bluntly on “Fox News Sunday” that Huckabee could not win.
“I think there is one opportunity to knock off the establishment candidate, and that is one conservative alternative to whoever that establishment candidate is. Mike Huckabee… I like Mike a lot, I think he’s really strong. But he would probably do better if he had run for one of the two open Senate seats in Arkansas. He decided not to do that, and had a great show on Fox. But the idea that Mike Huckabee is going to be President of the United States? I’ll predict that that’s not going to happen.”
