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.

If Hunter did that then he just relegated himself to almost complete obscurity when it comes to national politics.

I doubt though that he really had a chance for the VP slot.

I am surprised about this.

Well, I supported Hunter. But I do not support this endorsement. I personally feel that McCain would be the worst on immigration, followed by Huckabee. His record says as much, as did his own mouth to begin with in the debates when defending his Arkansas record of offering in-state tuition to illegal alien children.

Thomspon was my second choce by far. I now will support Romney as I believe he is the nearest thing to conservative on most issues of those left standing.

If he wanted the VP spot he should have endorsed some one who might win.

Probably because there are no true conservatives left running. So everyone has to pick the parts of the conservative message that are most dear to them.

Hunters endorsement but it was clearly based on principle and not on politics.

A conservative backs a socialist because of "principle"? Right.

Good point. I guess we won't be seeing a Romney/Hunter ticket any time soon.

This is hilarious.

I cannot wait to watch this thread explode.

First the minutemen and now Hunter.

It’s time for a reality check paleocons. Fred’s out. Hunter’s endorsing Huck.

This is going to leave a mark.
