Huckabee Returns Home to Arkansas for Super Tuesday

TEXARKANA, AR - Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee says voters can look at his history in Arkansas to see that he's maintained consistent positions on conservative issues.  The former governor spoke yesterday in Texarkana, where he was once a Baptist minister.

Speaking the day before Arkansas' presidential primaries, Huckabee said he hadn't changed his position on abortion and gay marriage.  In his ten years as governor, Huckabee opposed gay marriage and often spoke before a yearly anti-abortion march on the state Capitol.

Huckabee is seeking to contrast himself with opponent Mitt Romney.  While Massachusetts governor, Romney supported gay rights and abortion rights, something he's sought to distance himself from during his campaign for the GOP nomination.

Huckabee has not won a Republican primary or caucus since Iowa.
