Can someone remind us all, did Huckabee win anything after Iowa (except probably AR)?
I don’t recall him doing much of anything after Iowa, until a little flurry of activity around one of the big days where the South was sort of in play....
The point being: I think Santorum has already outdone Huckabee. Which “could” mean, that he is a real candidate. I am certainly trying to look on the bright side here....
Every dog has his day.
If he can pull this off in the South, then he’s a contender. Until then he’s a pretender.
