BLYTHEVILLE, AR (KAIT) - Health care reform and the war in Afghanistan were just a couple of the hot topics former governor Mike Huckabee addressed during his visit to Region 8 today.
Officially a book tour promoting his latest book, but to some, Huckabee's big bus and the 'Huck' uniforms gave the appearance of a campaign.
There were lots of Mike Huckabee fans in downtown Blytheville on Wednesday. Outside That Bookstore in Blytheville, the crowd lined up down the sidewalk waiting to get in.
Many were buying not one, but several copies of Huckabee's new book, A Simple Christmas -- stories from his life that he says relate to all the readers. Huckabee describes his new book this way: "Not a political book at all but I think it's a book when people read it they are going to see their own life, their own family, their own story."
