Paul Weyrich Endorses Huck

by

Paul WeyrichAs folks continue to count Huck out, despite his strong performance over the weekend and his subsequent rise in Virginia primary polls, the influential endorsements keep coming in.  The big name Republicans who are dissatisfied with moderate “maverick” John McCain are turning to the conservative alternative: Mike Huckabee.

Mike Huckabee received the endorsement of longtime conservative activist Paul Weyrich, a former Romney supporter who called him this morning with the news.

And here’s how the man from Hope reacted:

“He called me first of all and initiated the conversation and indicated to me that he felt like I was the one guy that was left that was a true conservative that really believed things that mattered to a lot of conservatives and it involved everything from strong national defense to immigration to tax policy, the life question. There were many different reasons, and, you know, so obviously, this is good news for me. I appreciate it,” Huckabee said.

This is good news that the media would like to downplay, as usual.

Asked how beneficial the endorsement would be since it hadn’t helped Romney, Huckabee shrugged, “Well, but a lot of things didn’t help Mitt Romney, including $100 million.”

Another great comeback.  Keep fighting onwards, Mike!  You’ve got us all behind you.
