The Mike Huckabee campaign made its next to last stop this morning in Chattanooga, Tennessee, before returning to Little Rock for Super Tuesday.
Mike Huckabee’s speech–along with a brief contribution by Chuck Norris–can be found here, and is the special podcast today. It’s a little over thirty minutes.
The stage is set for the candidate’s arrival.
For an 0800 meeting with short notice and a rainy day, not a bad crowd at all.
|Introducing the candidate.

He makes his stump speech to an attentive (and enthusiastic) audience. Happily the Ron Paul people–who have a habit of being obnoxious on occasions like this–are absent.
Now it’s Chuck Norris’ turn to speak while Mike Huckabee takes it in.
Mike greets his supporters on the rope line.
Chuck Norris and his wife do likewise. Sometimes it’s hard to know who’s the bigger celebrity, but Norris’ presence in Mike’s campaign shows that Huckabee was ahead of the curve (read: Barack Obama and Oprah Winfrey) in his use of celebrities.
The present and the future. Mike’s Evangelical demographic–with its high birthrate–is more focused on the future than many of his opponents’, Republican or Democrat.
