Huckabee Asks Arkansans to Pray for Rockefeller

FEBRUARY 2, 2006 - Posted at 7:45 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is asking citizens to pray for Lieutenant Governor Win Rockefeller after yesterday's announcement that Rockefeller will need a second bone marrow transplant to fight a rare blood disorder.

Huckabee said it is sad to hear that Rockefeller would have to undergo the transplant again after a period of positive progress.  Huckabee said that Rockefeller's faith and courage would get him through the ordeal.

Asa Hutchinson, who had faced a race against Rockefeller for the state Republican Party's gubernatorial nomination, said he and his wife were sad to learn the lieutenant governor needed another transplant.

And Arkansas attorney general Mike Beebe, who is seeking the state's Democratic gubernatorial nomination, also said he hates that Rockefeller and his family have to go through another transplant.  But Beebe added that he knows Rockefeller is receiving the best treatment.
