Huckabee to Discuss "Future Plans" on 'Meet the Press'

LITTLE ROCK, AR - Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, a Republican who is considering a run for president, is scheduled to appear Sunday on NBC's "Meet The Press" and will discuss his "future plans."  That's according to a news release from Huckabee's political action committee.

Huckabee this month finished his final term as governor, but long before he left office he began frequenting Iowa and New Hampshire, states with key early presidential preference contests.

The former governor has been on a national tour to promote his latest book.  He said before leaving office on January 9 that the reaction to his book would help him decide whether to run for president.

Huckabee established his Hope for America PAC, he said, to help other candidates.  He raised $513,630 for the PAC in the last quarter of 2006, most of it coming from a December 16 gala.  Huckabee's PAC is based in Virginia, which does not cap contributions to such groups.  A presidential exploratory committee would have financial limits, contraints that don't apply to spending by the PAC.

Huckabee's book "From Hope to Higher Ground" centers on a number of policies from his time as governor.
