New Hampshire Activist Signed on to Help Huckabee in '08

DECEMBER 12, 2006 - Posted at 7:57 a.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - A Republican Party activist from New Hampshire says that Governor Huckabee has asked him to head his New Hampshire campaign if the Arkansas governor decides to run for president in 2008.

Cliff Hurst, the former chairman of the Manchester Republican Committee in New Hampshire, told The Associated Press yesterday that Huckabee tapped him to head up a potential presidential campaign in the pivotal primary state.

Huckabee, who leaves office in January due to term limits, is considering a run for the 2008 presidential nomination and has said he won't announce his plans until after he leaves office.

Huckabee says he asked Hurst to work with him on his Hope for America Political Action Committee, which raises money for state and local candidates and has allowed the governor to build support and line up donors in advance of a possible run.
