Ahead of a potential run for president, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee spent Thursday in California meeting with experts in domestic and foreign policy.

Huckabee senior adviser Hogan Gidley confirmed to The Daily Caller that Huckabee spent the day at the Hoover Institution at Stanford. The Washington Post first reported the news. 

The visit included both a Q&A session with 40 fellows at the think-tank and private meetings with scholars on policy, a source said. Those in attendance included Secretary of State George Shultz and Lanhee Chen, a former top aide to Mitt Romney.

Huckabee’s meetings with policy heavy hitters comes as the Republican says he is seriously considering a White House run.
