Huckabee Visits Iowa for Caucuses

JANUARY 17, 2006 - Posted at 8:02 a.m. CST

 

DES MOINES, IOWA - Governor Huckabee says that he sees himself having an advantage if he runs for president because he's a Washington DC outsider and not associated with recent political scandals in the nation's capital.

Huckabee was in Des Moines, Iowa, yesterday to watch the state's precinct caucuses.  Huckabee was among several political heavyweights from both parties who visited Iowa.

Huckabee attended a caucus in heavily Republican Sioux County in northwest Iowa, urging the GOP to remain focused on the issues and win voters' trust after former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was indicted for allegedly violating campaign finance laws and lobbyist Jack Abramoff pleaded guilty to bribery charges.

Huckabee's visit comes as potential presidential candidates of both parties step up their focus in Iowa, where precinct caucuses in two years will mark the first test of the presidential nominating season.
