Huckabee Campaign Press Release - Mike Huckabee Endorsed by Missouri Legislators

January 29, 2008

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. -- Former Arkansas Governor and Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee announced the endorsement of 31 Missouri legislators during a news conference Tuesday in Jefferson City, Mo. Huckabee spoke to a standing-room-only crowd of about 250 people in a conference room of the Associated Industries of Missouri building.

Since he is from neighboring Arkansas, Huckabee said he has certain kinship with Missouri.

"I want to turn the nonsense of our tax system to the common sense of what's often called the FairTax," Huckabee said. He also discussed being pro-life was well as his stance on homeland security, terrorism and the economy.

State Senator Delbert Scott and State Rep. Scott Lipke, two co-chairs of Huckabee's Missouri campaign, introduced Huckabee and then presented the other state legislators supporting him.

"He is a solid conservative who isn't afraid to tell it like it is," Lipke said . "As governor, Huckabee cut taxes where he could and made good use of the revenues he had improving roads and education in Arkansas. That is the kind of common sense leadership the country needs right now."

Besides Scott and Lipken, the other co-chairs of the Huckabee campaign are Rep. Brian Yates and Rep. Mike Sutherland.
