Huckabee Raised $500K in First Three Months of Year

LITTLE ROCK (AP) - A spokesman for the presidential-campaign exploratory committee of former Governor Mike Huckabee says the campaign raised a little more than $500,000 in the first three months of the year. That amount reported yesterday by Huckabee campaign manager Chip Saltsman trails by far the vast amounts raised by other presidential hopefuls.

Huckabee, who left office in January, has formed an exploratory committee for the Republican presidential nomination. Saltsman said Huckabee's committee had roughly $300,000 in cash on hand at the end of the reporting period.

Saltsman said Huckabee's goal was to raise a half-million dollars in the first three months of the year, and the former governor went slightly above that goal. He said Huckabee was worried about the money gap between himself and such other GOP candidates as former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney. Saltsman said Huckabee's campaign only began six weeks ago, while some of the other Republican candidates have been running for president for six years.
