Former Arkansas Gov. Mick Huckabee praised South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham in this TV ad but now insists it wasn't an endorsement.
It looked like an endorsement and sounded like an endorsement but Mike Huckabee is backtracking now from his support of Lindsey Graham, insisting he did not mean to back the South Carolina Senator even though he appeared in a TV ad singing the politicians praises.
The former Arkansas Gov. and current FOX News host starred in ad for the South Carolina Conservative Action Alliance, calling Graham a "leader in South Carolina who knows what it takes to win."
Calling the Republican a champion for peace, Huckabee thanked the southern senator for demanding information on the Benghazi attacks and for supporting Israel.
The spot was uploaded to the SCCAA YouTube account on Dec. 11 but only aired this Wednesday during the Capital One Bowl when the University of South Carolina beat Wisconsin, 34-24.
The Columbia based SCCAA is a "grassroots advocacy organization that promotes common-sense, conservative solutions," according to their website.
Now Huckabee insists the ad wasnt an endorsement for Graham, who is running for a third term, but merely a chance to thank the politician for standing behind Israel.
"Last year, I voiced an ad thanking him for support of Israel," Huckabee wrote in a statement this week.
"It was not an endorsement for his reelection. In fact, I don't plan to endorse anyone in SC Senate race in the primary but I will certainly help in the general election if asked."

Reacting not leading.
I'm beginning to feel very optimistic about the chances of flushing Lindsey Girl.
Now, if only Kentuckians can do the same with Mitch . . .
Huckabee is a snake in the grass and does whatever “subtle” things he can get away with to sabotage true conservative candidates (while he promotes fake conservatives).
Support Lee Bright to oust Lindsey Graham in SC
“A fast backtrack like that suggests the opposition to Lindsey is energized and responded quickly and strongly. I like the sound of that.”
I agree. A very good sign!
Lots of stories right out of the 2014 gate. Time to go full throttle against these worthless RINO’s.
LOL, too late!
More doublespeak from our RINO elite.
This is like Cracker Barrel and the Duck Dynasty controversy - too late, damage already done Huck.
LOL, too late!
It is funny. Huckabee does another “slip” and shows his true colors.
The Governor’s pretty light on his feet for a fat guy.
Just when I didn’t think I could possibly dislike this idiot any more than I already do....
“And that cross in my campaign ad is only a bookshelf, my son doesn’t torture and kill puppies, I don’t let murderers out of jail to murder again, and I lost my weight by jogging and dieting!”
Have any proof?
Yet there are his supporters who will try to spin it.
But still, his true colors showed as you mention, and he felt the heat a bit.
Negative remarks on FR could cost him his job as night manager at Slim's Live Bait and Groceries.
This leaves both Huck and Graham looking like damaged goods.
The Gov. endorsed perhaps out of southern brotherhood.
You are promoting a faulty product, Gov. Huck!
