HOPE, Ark. (AP) — He won eight Republican primaries in 2008 — and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is looking to see if he can do better than that in 2016.
In his hometown of Hope, Arkansas — also the birthplace of Bill Clinton — Huckabee Tuesday is launching another bid for the GOP presidential nomination.
He’s reaching out to working-class cultural conservatives, as he promotes his conservative views on social issues such as abortion and gay marriage.
Huckabee joins a number of Republican candidates including Marco Rubio and Carly Fiorina. Hillary Clinton and Senator Bernie Sanders are the only well-known Democrats to announce they are seeking a nomination so far.
