Former Gov. Mike Huckabee (R-Ark.) on Sunday said a decision about whether he’ll run for president in 2016 is “forthcoming.”

“We’re looking very carefully at the structure that would need to be in place.  And I think a decision will be forthcoming. I’ve always said my timetable is sometime in the spring. And by the winter, we’re not quite there yet,” Huckabee said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”

Huckabee, who skipped the Conservative Political Action Conference over the weekend, came in 14th place in its annual straw poll for president with only 0.3 percent of the vote.
