Huckabee Talks Fundraising, Iowa Straw Poll

We love Mike Huckabee.

Love. Him.

So we were quite pleased to hear the former Arkansas Governor tell bloggers on a conference call this morning that his campaign's 2Q fundraising numbers will be "a figure that we will be very happy with. It will show progress and it will show momentum."

The Huck continued, "People donate to us out of conviction. We will have much better 2Q numbers than 1Q numbers. And we hope that 3Q numbers will be even better."

And then, unable to resist jabbing the national Gang of 500 a bit, "Our (2Q) numbers might not impress the national media. But we aren't trying to be elected by the national media."

Can we hear an Amen!

Huckabee also reiterated that his campaign would "stay in" the Ames straw poll.

Maybe he read our memo?
