Huckabee Says He's In It To the End

WASHINGTON - Mike Huckabee hasn't won a Republican presidential contest in a month.  The result: money is tighter, his staff is smaller and he can't seem to get the attention he once did.

Still, he says he's sticking around for the long haul, well past tomorrow's coast-to-coast primaries and caucuses if need be.

A Southernor and one-time Baptist preacher, Huckabee hopes to perform strongly, if not win, in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Missouri to reinvigorate his campaign.

In those states, Huckabee could end up helping John McCain by peeling away votes and delegates from Mitt Romney, the former Massachusetts governor who is competing there after essentially ceding big-prize Northeast battlegrounds.

Huckabee and Romney draw much of their support from the same pool of conservative voters, while McCain tends to attract voters of all ideological stripes.  Romney, himself, has raised the possibility that Huckabee might be continuing his bid solely "to try and split that conservative vote."

In an interview with The Associated Press, Huckabee contended he can still rack up enough delegates to win the denomination.  But he declined to go into detail, and ignored pills that show him trailing McCain and Romney in many states.
