LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Add another name to the list of potential GOP presidential contenders for 2016. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee — the winner of the 2008 Iowa caucuses, who took a pass on the 2012 presidential race — says he might be willing to give it another try.
In an interview Thursday night, Huckabee said he is receiving encouragement to run “from places where I never got it before.”
That includes “business, people some would maybe call the establishment,” he added. Both groups were adversaries in his 2008 bid, which caught fire in Iowa, but sputtered in later contests where he lacked money and organization.
