What a year. My family has been supporting Mike Huckabee for over a year. Apart from buying a Bush/Cheney hat and coffee mug, I haven’t been part of an election in a long time. Here are some of the positive things from this past year.
- Mike Huckabee showed that you can run a presidential campaign without being bitter and divisive.
- You can run a campaign without $100MM dollars
- Grass Roots efforts do make a difference
Some of the things I personally learned
- I know a lot more about the primary process in many states
- Not all state primaries represent the will of the people (Louisiana, Washington)
- I know some of the local Republican party leaders.
Some things my family has done
- Gone to a state party convention
- Hugged a presidential candidate and his wife
- Waved signs on the street corner for Mike Huckabee
- Started a blog
- Researched and supported a candidate that represents our values
Here are some of the people I’ve been reading – sometimes on a daily basis
- Kevin Tracy
- The Hillings Family
- Grand Rapids for Huck
- The Opinionated Catholic
- Of Course Mike Huckabee
I really enjoyed your posts. They were always respectful, often thought provoking, and sometimes funny. Thanks.
I’m proud of the way that Mike Huckabee ran his campaign. And despite losing, he won and I won. He had a chance to go negative. But, he kept his honor. And I think I learned a little more about honor.
I’m especially proud of the work that my wife put in to help Mike Huckabee – making phone calls, donating money, and time. She carted kids around to see Mike at rally’s, sent notes to her friends, and talked to anyone who would listen.
So, to her, and to all of the other moms, kids, husbands, friends that worked hard to help Mike get as far as he did, THANK YOU.
I would like to thank everyone that viewed this blog. It was great fun for me. I hope you enjoyed some of it.
Good luck and I’ll see you at the polls in November.
