Duncan Hunter Endorses Mike Huckabee
National Review Online ^ | 1-23-08 | Byron York

Posted on 01/23/2008 12:29:02 PM PST by TitansAFC

This was a surprise. From the Hunter statement:

"I got to know Governor Huckabee well on the campaign trail," said Hunter. "Of the remaining candidates I feel that he is strongly committed to strengthening national defense, constructing the border fence and meeting the challenge of China's emergence as a military superpower that is taking large portions of America‚s industrial base."

"Along with these issues of national security, border enforcement and protecting the U.S. industrial base, I see another quality of Mike Huckabee's candidacy that compels my endorsement. Mike Huckabee is a man of outstanding character and integrity. I saw that character over the last year of campaigning and was greatly impressed. The other Republican candidates have many strengths and I wish them all well. My personal choice is Mike Huckabee," Hunter concluded.

This can only mean he wants the VP spot. I cannot fathom any other reason why a true conservative would endorse Huckabee.

I was more of a Duncan Hunter fan before I read this.

I guess it was a good thing he dropped out - our Presidents need better judgment than this.

Why he endorsed the one candidate who is most likely to lose and can’t really do any favors. I am not sure if I agree with Rep. Hunters endorsement but it was clearly based on principle and not on politics.
