Huck's Army Aims to Stop Evangelicals From Voting For Obama

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) may have lost the Republican presidential primary, but his supporters are still actively campaigning to stop Barack Obama from winning, reports Marc Ambinder.

The moderator of a pro-Huckabee online forum, Huck's Army, has sent a mass e-mail to forum members urging them to tell fellow evangelical voters not to back Obama.

Ken Neikirk - an online discussion forum moderator for "Huck's Army," an unofficial grassroots organization in support of Mike Huckabee -- sent out a mass email Wednesday to the group's members urging them to discourage fellow evangelicals from voting for Democratic nominee Barack Obama.

"If you live in one of the states that have been identifed as 'swing states,' you are needed for a special project to educate evangelicals about Barack Obama's positions on important issues and his proposed plans that would lead our country down the wrong path," Neikerk wrote. "These states are FL, OH, MI, VA, CO."

Huckabee backers are also scheduled to meet Wednesday with McCain. They hope to keep McCain from picking former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, Huckabee's chief rival in the Iowa caucuses.
