Huckabee Attacks Perry For Timing Of His Announcement
Former Arkansas governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says Rick Perry is disrespecting the process and the state of Iowa by announcing Saturday.
“It’s a tactical blunder … The people of Iowa work very hard to make the straw poll the biggest political moment in the summer,” Huckabee said. “If you have a candidate who says, ‘You know what, I’m not gonna be there, I’m gonna be over in South Carolina, trying to pull as much attention as possible away from your big event’ – I’ll tell you, the people of Iowa are gracious, loving, kind people, and they’re not gonna take kindly to someone, in essence, dissing their big event. Which is what it will be reviewed as in the state of Iowa.”
