Mike Huckabee, refusing to concede to John McCain, racks up another win, this time in the state of Kansas, this despite the endorsement of McCain by Kansas Senator and former Presidential candidate Sam Brownback.
Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee easily won the Kansas caucus Saturday, defeating John McCain despite the Senator’s vast lead among delegates in the race for the Republican presidential nomination.
And there’s no sign that the plucky Arkansan from Hope is going to just let McCain have the nomination. He’s in this race until it’s actually over. That’s a good thing, since Mike Huckabee is the conservative alternative to the Arizona “maverick.”
The vote for Huckabee is another sign that McCain has yet to win over the nation’s conservative, heartland voters despite having dispatched most of his rivals during the first five weeks of the year.
In an speech to conservative activists in Washington Saturday morning, he said “I didn’t major in math,” he said at the Conservative Political Action Conference meeting. “I majored in miracles, and I still believe in them.”
Huck is going to fight to the end, and there may be more surprises in store.
But Huckabee told reporters after his speech that he will wait until he or McCain wins the needed 1,191 delegates. “I won’t drop out until at least that happens,” he said. “Then we’ll see.”
Update: Huckabee wins in Louisiana and is giving JMac a run for his money in Washington state. W00t!
