More from Huckabee
Surprise victor across the South tells supporters he'll be in the White House next year.
As Huckabee said, the pundits were calling the Republican contest a two-man race before Super Tuesday. "Well, you know what, it is," he said, "and we're in it."
What did his speech stress? A fair shot at the American dream for middle-class families. Families allowed to raise children the way they wish. Border security. Sanctity of human life. In other words, his usual combination of social conservatism and economic populism.
So much for Romney. He has been criticizing McCain for his weakness on issue social conservatives care about. Those criticisms may have hit home, but they've helped Huckabee rather than him.
(Collin had a bit more on Huckabee's speech.)
