Mike Huckabee Endorsements

The Mike Huckabee campaign has been steadily gaining momentum. With the increasing momentum and publicity has come increasing numbers of endorsements for Huckabee. Someone who does not follow the campaign closely has probably only heard about the Chuck Norris or Ric Flair endorsements, but there are a number of other significant endorsements that have not been covered as heavily by the media. The list below contains only the endorsements of Christian leaders so you will notice the Norris and Flair are missing from the list.

I will list them here, courtesy of Mike Huckabee’s official site, and comment on some of them. My comments will be non-italicized.

*Title and affiliation for identification purposes only and do not imply an endorsement by any ministry, group or organization)

Dr. Jerry Jenkins, best-selling author,  including the Left Behind  series;   Colorado (Jerry Jenkins is one of the biggest names in Christian publishing)
Zig Ziglar, Author and motivational  speaker; Texas

Star Parker, Founder and president of  CURE;* Washington D.C.

Karen Testerman,  Founder and Executive Director of the  Cornerstone Policy Research;* New Hampshire

Michael Farris, Chair of Home School Legal  Defense Association* and Chancellor of Patrick Henry College;* Virginia (This is a great endorsement because homeschooling families are among the best grassroots supporters a candidate can have because they are typically very active in their churches and communities)


Rev. Keith Butler, Founding Pastor of Word  of Faith International Christian Center Church;* Michigan

Thomas Glessner, attorney, author, and  Founder/President of the National Institute of Family and Life Advocates;*  Virginia

William J. Murray, Chair of Religious  Freedom Coalition,* Chair of Government is Not God PAC,* and author;  Washington D.C.

Randy Alcorn, Founder and Director of  Eternal Perspective Ministries,* best-selling author of 28 books, fiction and  nonfiction; Oregon


Dr. Ronnie Floyd, Senior Pastor of First  Baptist Church of Springdale* and The Church at Pinnacle Hills */ Former  President of the Pastor’s Conference/ Former Chairman of the Executive  Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention;  Arkansas

Michael Heath, Executive Director of  Christian Civic League of Maine;* Maine

Don Wildmon, Founder and Chairman of  American Family Association;* Mississippi

Bishop John Gimenez, International  Overseer of Rock Ministerial Family,* in conjunction with Rock Church  International and co-founder of Rock Church in Virginia Beach;*  Virginia

Pastor Anne Gimenez, Co-founder and pastor of Rock Church  in Virginia Beach;* Virginia

Dr. Mark Bailey, President of Dallas  Theological Seminary;*   Texas (I attended DTS for a time and had a class with Dr. Bailey. He is a very wise man and would not endorse a candidate on a whim. While Bailey may not be well known outside education circles, his endorsement carries a lot of weight with evangelical Christian academics)


Stephen Strang, Founder and President of  Strang Communications and Founder of Charisma Magazine;  Florida

Rick Scarborough, Founder and President of  Vision America;* Texas

Dr. Joe Fuiten, Founder of Positive  Christian Agenda* and Pastor of Cedar Park Church;*  Washington

Jerry Cox, President of Arkansas Family  Council;* Arkansas

Janet Folger, President of Faith2Action;*  Florida

Jim Pfaff, President and CEO of the  Colorado Family Action;* Colorado

Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman of  Liberty Counsel*/ Dean of Liberty University Law School;*  Virginia (Liberty University is a well respected Christian university founded by the late Jerry Falwell. Any endorsement out of Liberty can carry a lot of weight with people who may have liked Falwell and with evangelicals in general)


Kelly Shackelford, Chief Counsel, Liberty  Legal Institute and President of Free Market Foundation;*  Texas

Phil Burress, President of Citizens for  Community Values;* Ohio

Dr. Jack Graham, Pastor of Prestonwood  Baptist Church,* Former President of Southern Baptist Convention;*  Texas

Dr. James T. Draper Jr., Former President  of Southern Baptist Convention/ Former President of Lifeway Christian  Resources; Texas

Dr. Jerry Vines, Former President of  Southern Baptist Convention/ Former Pastor of First Baptist Church of  Jacksonville, FL / Founder of Jerry Vines Ministries;* Georgia

Dr. Daniel L. Akin, President of  Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary;* North  Carolina (Great! Now if the other Southern Baptist seminaries would follow his example. Paige Patterson, Al Mohler, and Jeff Lorg pay attention)

Dr. Jay Strack, President/ Founder of  Student Leadership University,* World- renowned Southern Baptist communicator  and minister; Florida

Dr. Billy McCormack, Pastor of University  Baptist Church*/ Founding National Board Member of Christian Coalition;*  Louisiana

That is a good start for Huckabee. Hopefully, as time goes on he can pick up even more endorsements. It would also be beneficial for his campaign to pick up some strong endorsements by politicians.

  1. i ask that you familiarize yourself with Mike Huckabee for President of the United States of America!! i have conveniently placed 57 Minutes worth of You Tube videos here on my profile, (three of the videos are not on my profile, but i have provided the links to) n i have a blog on my page that explains why i vote Mike Huckabee ..

    it took me a long time to know who he is, what he’s about, n even his name .. but now that i’ve got it, along with a great many other supporters who just seem to keep adding on, i promote n support him n hope that you will find it in your heart to do so as well if you haven’t already ..

    i understand that sometimes or many times we might not always agree 100% on all the issues with a candidate who is running for President, n this may very well be true with you n Mike Huckabee (possibly, maybe not likely), but even those who disagree with him respect him n for good reason .. even though we might not always necessarily agree on issues (at times) here is a man who brings forth his message, his convictions, his experience, his genuineness, his humility, n he really does have a lot to offer as President of the United States of America ..

    from one who is sincerely n reasonably convinced to vote for Mike Huckabee, i ask that you look into his story n his candidacy ..

    if you can do it yourself, should you become a supporter or if you already are that’s great, but if you’d like an audio version of these same videos n would perhaps make copies n share them with others, i have it all on CD n am making copies n using this form for sharing his message with friends, n family, n neighbors, n pastors, n others that i know here n throughout other places .. ruben anthony mendoza

  2. I support Huck. I pray for him. Daily I make comments on multiple newspaper sites in their comments sections following the articles. I also write all the key conservative microphone elites (Hannity, Rush) etc, asking them to quit colluding with Drudge. These “fiscal” only conservatives, with the aid of FOX news and National Review are trying to hurt Huck bad. But if he stays on message he will win. He has broad crossover appeal.

  3. This is an endorsement. Don’t try to play cute with this.

    Huck’s corruption sinks him with me. His moral relativism–taking money for speeches/etc. gifts from benefactors, registering for a wedding years after his wedding and a year after he renewed his vows just to get gifts from “friends” (aka lobbyists). Immoral. But he was a pastor, so he is “good”

    He is funny, witty, but not presidential.

    He has the same record, or a slightly further left record than Harry Reid. Harry Reid, the Democratic majority leader, is Pro-life, but in agreement with Huckabees ACTIONS much more than any other GOP candidate.
