Huckabee Fundraising for Republicans in South Carolina

October 2,2005 - Posted at 10:55 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA,SC (AP) -  Governor Huckabee was fundraising for Republicans in South Carolina yesterday when he made more comments about his possible presidential bid.

    Huckabee said there aren't any ``yes'' or ``no'' answers to the question, ``Will he run for president?'' He said the truthful answer is that he is open to running and he is keeping his options open. However, Huckabee said it's not a decision he feels he should make for at least another year and a half. Huckabee knows his visits to early primary states raise speculation. He has already been to major G-O-P events in Iowa and New Hampshire before Saturday's trip to Columbia, South Carolina,the state that holds the first Southern primary.

     Huckabee helped raise 80 thousand dollars for the 2006 election at a fundraiser at the South Carolina Governor's Mansion. South Carolina G-O-P Chairwoman Katon Dawson said Huckabee was invited because he is well known among the party's executive committee and because of his leadership of the Baptist Convention in Arkansas. Dawson said Huckabee has a strong reputation as a conservative in South Carolina. Huckabee was scheduled to speak at a forum on arts education at the College of Charleston in Charleston, South Carolina, this morning.
