LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansas First Lady Janet Huckabee has taken a job selling siding and windows, two years after losing a bid to become secretary of state. Huckabee told The Associated Press yesterday that she's learning the ropes as the new director of marketing and customer care for Hot Springs-based Hanke Brothers Siding & Windows, Incorporated.
It is Mrs. Huckabee's first employment outside the home since her husband, Mike, became Arkansas governor in 1996. Her first attempt to expand her beyond those of first lady was her failed bid for secretary of state in 2002.
