Mike Huckabee Ends Fox Show to Explore Presidential Run

Mike Huckabee Ends Fox Show to Explore Presidential Run 

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee will announce Saturday that his eponymous
show on Fox News this weekend will be his last as he explores a repeat run for
the White House in 2016, he wrote in an email to supporters Saturday.

Huckabee, who placed first in the Iowa Caucuses in 2008 but lost the
nomination to Sen. John McCain, has been a Fox News host for six and a half
years and ended a radio show popular among conservatives last year. Huckabee
quietly looked at running in 2012, but in an appearance on his show in 2011
announced he would not run.

“All the factors say ‘go‘, but my heart says ‘no,'” Huckabee said on
his show in May 2011.

Now, he is set to explore a campaign for the Oval Office, telling supporters
in an email he will make his final decision by the spring of this year:

There has been a great deal of speculation as to whether I would run for
President. I won’t make a decision about running until late in the spring of
2015, but the continued chatter has put Fox News into a position that is not
fair to them. The honorable thing to do at this point is to end my tenure here
at Fox so I can openly talk with potential donors and supporters and gauge
support. As much as I have loved doing the show, I love my country more, and
feel that it may be time for me to enter a zone of comfort to engage in the
conflicts that have almost destroyed the bedrock foundations of America. I feel
compelled to ascertain if the support exists strongly enough for another
Presidential run. So as we say in television, stay tuned!
Huckabee, a Baptist pastor and favorite of his party’s evangelical base,
teased his announcement on Twitter Saturday, telling viewers “You can watch
tonight or read about it in the papers tomorrow.”

“He cant rule out a presidential run and doesn’t feel that it’s right to
continue,” a person close to Huckabee said.

Due to campaign finance laws, Huckabee’s show could be considered an in-kind
contribution to the maybe-candidate were it to continue, necessitating its
cancellation. His move follows Florida Gov. Jeb Bush’s efforts over the past
several weeks to quit corporate and non-profit boards that would be a conflict
of interest should he formally run for the White House.

His potential entrance into the race puts pressure on other likely social
conservatives candidates Sen. Ted Cruz and former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick
Santorum, who would compete for many of the same supporters. Sen. Rand Paul’s
political action committee previewed Huckabee’s announcement by taking out
Google search ads against his name Saturday afternoon linking to their

Huckabee is set to release a book, titled God, Guns, Grits, and
, on January 20.
