Huckabee super-PAC to voters: Get serious

Greg Nash

A super-PAC that supports former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is running a radio ad in Iowa urging Republican voters to “consider someone serious” for the White House.

The ad criticizes Republican presidential front-runners Donald Trump and Ted Cruz and calls Huckabee a conservative with a “record of achievement and respect for public service.”

{mosads}”At times, this presidential campaign has been downright hard to watch,” the ad says. “It’s as if Trump and Cruz have completely forgot they’re running for the highest office in the land, an office held by great men, great Republicans.”

The ad, released by Pursuing America’s Greatness, said Huckabee balanced budgets, cut taxes, fought corruption and created jobs during his time as governor.

“Mike Huckabee is a serious conservative leader and a man of faith we can always trust,” the ad says. “Mike Huckabee for president.”

Huckabee has been lagging in the polls, with his falling numbers pushing him into the undercard debate.

In the RealClearPolitics average of polls in Iowa — a state Huckabee won in 2008 — he has just 2.4 percent support. The state’s caucuses will be held Feb.1.
