Huckabee Endorsed by Home School Defense League

 “a historic, early endorsement” by the Home School Legal Defense Association with it’s 80,000 members for Mike Huckabee.   Huckabee’s record as governor of Arkansas, pro-life, pro-family conservative values and presidential campaign platform, which includes a pro-defense plank and support for the FairTax, were listed as the reasons for this support. “Many of us have waited a long time for a presidential candidate who is a truly qualified and articulate man who shares our values down to his core.”
