Bill Kristol, editor in chief of the respected magazine The Weekly Standard, today posted an article which speaks highly of Mike Huckabee’s chances at being the nominee of the Republican party (link).
Kristol’s opinion carries a lot of weight in conservative circles and proves yet again that momentum for the Governor is continuing to grow. Huckabee has so far been able to give strong responses to all his critics, so if he can continue to get positive press from names like Kristol, it speaks well of his chances of continuing to advance in the polls. The increased publicity also will help Huckabee to close the fund raising gap between himself and the other candidates. This will, in turn, allow him to get his message out to a broader audience.
These last few months have proved that Mike Huckabee is a viable candidate. His steadily increasing support and continual improvement in the polls attest to this. As long as he can continue to answer the criticisms that are increasingly being leveled against him with strength and style, I believe we will continue to see him gain momentum.
