10/9/05, Bandy: Watch out for Huckabee

The State newspaper's Lee Bandy writes that Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee bears watching in the 2008 GOP presidential contest:

Huckabee, 49, is an intriguing person, just the kind of candidate who could catch fire here.

Having spent a significant part of his adult life as a pastor and denominational leader, he is a darling of Christian conservatives who make up a lion’s share of the S.C. GOP primary vote. He led the Arkansas Baptist State Convention, the largest denomination in the state.

He says those experiences gave him a deep sense of the problems faced by individuals and families.
