Brody File Video Exclusive: Mike Huckabee Says He's Thinking about Running for President


In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says he is having discussions with advisors about running for president of the United States in 2016.

The Brody File interviewed Huckabee at the Values Voter Summit on Friday. Watch the clip below along with the transcription.

If Huckabee gets in, the whole dynamic of the 2016 GOP Primary race would change. Sens. Ted Cruz and Rand Paul would lose some of their potential support and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie wouldn’t be looked upon as the only electable-type Republican.

David Brody: People want you to run for president again.  Are you going to think about it?

Mike Huckabee: Absolutely. Yeah, no hesitancy to say, for sure. Does that mean I will? I don’t know. Does that mean I won’t? I don’t know. But am I thinking about it? Am I talking to people about it? Yeah, that would be fair to say.

What a great day that would be for our country if Mike Huckabee were our next president. Informed by his Christian faith, grounded by his governmental experience, blessed by his keen intellect and ability to communicate, and rooted in conservative principles, his election would be the mark of 180 degree turn for the good for our country.

Huckabee, what a POS. While governor he pardoned more murders, rapists and armed robbers than all his 3 predecessors. More than all 7 surrounding states. Remember Maurice Clemmons that murdered 4 police officers in Lakewood, WA. He had been serving 95 years for a violent rape. Just sent The Huck a note about "finding GOD!" and he was paroled. Wayne Dumond, a convicted rapist was paroled by The Huck and he went on to rape and murder 2 women. The Huck was schmuck for any con saying "they found GOD!"

Way too much baggage for this guy to be anything except unemployed!

I've been hoping for a long, long time that Gov. Huckabee would get back into the Presidential race. We need him. America needs him. Christians and all people of faith need this man to help lead our country back onto the right path.

The question is can he beat Hillary Clinton because people want a woman president. I think Mike would be an excellent president and would help to restore the country back to where our founding fathers made it. Would it be easy, No. To many people are entitlement minded for it to be easy. We need to start preaching taking care of yourself with God's help. If we don't get back then the country just might split in two. God help us and keep praying for a godly president.
