Huckabee Revs Up Marylanders
The Maryland delegation was treated to a breakfast speech this morning from former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R), who, like most others in the room, appeared to still be on a high from last night's speech by GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin.
Huckabee, a former presidential contender, told the crowd he was looking forward to the Alaska governor's debate with Sen. Joseph Biden (D-Del.), the Democratic nominee.
"All the wind in Joe Biden's body is not going to able to blow her away," Huckabee said.
Huckabee, who also addressed the convention last night, took several jabs at the "axis of power between Washington and Wall Street," which he said had been unfairly critical of Palin in the days following her announcement as the running mate of Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
Former Maryland lieutenant governor Michael S. Steele (R) was enthusiastically greeted in the hotel lobby shortly after the breakfast broke up.
Steele, who gave a rousing convention address last night, has spent much of his week as a McCain surrogate, speaking to other delegations and groups.
Marylanders and others in the lobby posed for pictures and sought autographs from Steele, now chairman of GOPAC, an organization that seeks to recruit Republican candidates across the country.
