Mike Huckabee weighs in on Md. delegate race

Huckabee.jpgSarah Palin isn't the only Republican with national ambitions weighing in on Maryland politics.

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) on Thursday endorsed Justin Ready, a candidate for the Maryland House of Delegates from Carroll County.

"Electing Justin Ready will help bring real positive change to Maryland," said Huckabee, a 2008 presidential candidate who is eying another bid in 2012, on his Huck PAC blog.

Huckabee's rationale for endorsing Ready might be easier to understand than Sarah Palin's rationale last month for endorsing Brian Murphy, a long-shot GOP candidate for governor, over former Maryland governor Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. (R). Ready, a former executive director of the Maryland Republican Party, served as Huckabee's campaign director for Maryland in 2008.

The endorsement is well-earned. Ready has run an outstanding campaign.

To the person who posted above, it's good to see that you're so committed to raising the tone of the debate. If by "ultimate dweeb," you mean someone who's ready to go to work on day one, knows how to get legislation to the floor and then get it passed, and is committed to conservative principles, then I'll take it.
