Huckabee Joins Colleagues at National Governors Conference in D.C.

February 22, 2004 - Posted at 7:58 a.m. CDT

WASHINGTON, DC - Governor Huckabee is attending the annual meeting of the National Governors Association in Washington.  He and his colleagues from other states are hoping to find common ground on education, health care, roads and other issues.  But they are falling into partisan camps.

On education, Huckabee and other Republican governors say President Bush's education bill has been unfairly maligned.  Huckabee calls the No Child Left Behind Act "innovative," and he says education isn't something that should be turned into a political football.
