Values Voters Love Mike Huckabee, But They May Love Ben Carson More

A huge part of Mike Huckabee’s message is his experience fighting who may very well be the Democratic nominee. “I’ve been fighting the Clintons all of my political life,” he said.

In his first year in office he installed an 800 number for corruption that resulted in 1,000 phone calls and eventually 15 indictments of Clinton cronies.
