NOVEMBER 2, 2004 - Posted at 4:32 p.m. CDT

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Governor Huckabee said this afternoon that he's confident President Bush will win Arkansas' six electoral votes tonight.

Speaking on the cable news station MSNBC, Huckabee said he's not sure of polls in the state showing a dead heat between Bush and Democrat John Kerry.  Huckabee also said he didn't know how much of an affect a visit from former President Bill Clinton would have on the vote.

Huckabee called Clinton a great campaigner but questioned whether he could transfer his magic to Senator Kerry.  Huckabee also continued his accusation that Kerry doesn't have a lot of resonance with people in Arkansas.
