Huckabee takes 2nd in the Ames Straw Poll.
And in this situation, 2nd is the new 1st.
Way to go, Governor!
We'll be seeing you in New Hampshire quite soon.
Hold on tight.
(updated) Is Huckabee a 1st tier candidate now?
That seems to be the question on the Gang of 500's lips the day after Huck takes 2nd in the Ames straw poll.
Our answer - define what constitutes a 1st tier GOP candidate at this point in this race.
We can't either. Not really anyway.
All we know is that the Huck is "in the hunt".
