Little Rock, AR – Governor Mike Huckabee said, “On November
2nd Americans overwhelmingly spoke with one voice, sending a message to
Washington that we will not be ignored. The demise of the
Republican Party predicted two years ago was obviously unfounded.
But now is the time for all the new officeholders to hold true to
their promises and bring about the type of change they promised and
their constituents desire. Huck PAC will continue to support
Republicans at all levels of government, and will continue fighting for
conservative causes until we take back the Senate and ultimately the
White House. We’ll continue to grow Team Huck membership in all
50 states, adding to the thousands of volunteers that helped make
yesterday’s victories a reality.”
This election cycle Huck PAC endorsed 126 candidates at all levels of government: Governorships, US Senate, US House, State Senate and House seats – all the way down to County Clerk. Huck PAC candidates were victorious in 94 races, came up short in 25 and 7 are still too close to call.
Governor Huckabee said, “Endorsements don’t win races, candidates do. And Huck PAC tries to help candidates on the basis of their principles, not their press or polling favorability. We often purposely pick underdogs who are clearly behind, but clearly great and principled candidates – because I know what it’s like to be written off by the elite punditry class without regard to issues. Huck PAC wants all of its candidates to win, but we are proud of each one we’ve endorsed and would do it again.”
Hogan Gidley, Executive Director Huck PAC added, “Governor Huckabee was active in many races, headlining rallies and fundraising events for candidates across the county, recording robo-calls, GOTV messages, not to mention radio and television ads. Much of what the Governor did for candidates flew under the DC press radar, but the candidates who received the help sure appreciated it. In fact, towards the end of the election, Governor Huckabee traveled to about 10 states a week working for our endorsed candidates.
We’d like to truly thank our national grassroots organization, Team Huck, who made thousands of phone calls for candidates, knocked on countless doors and helped mobilize votes nationwide. Our loyal national network of volunteers who are hardworking and committed – ever fighting for what and who they believe in. Our volunteers are the best in the country.”
