Huckabee Hopes to Shore up McCain in Southwest
Former GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee will campaign for his one-time rival, John McCain, tomorrow in Southwestern Virginia.
Huckabee was the last Republican to drop out of the race nomination after McCain opened a clear delegate lead. Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor and Baptist preacher, proved to be popular in many rural communities in the south. Although McCain carried Virginia during the Feb. 12 primary, Huckabee performed well in Southwest Virginia. Huckabee will be campaigning with Sandy Froman, a former president of the National Rifle Association.
Meanwhile, Democrat Barack Obama is relying on musicians to help him turn out voters in Richmond. On Sunday, Dave Matthews performed a free concert in support of Obama at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond. Sheryl Crow, a nine-time Grammy winner, is also appearing at an event for Obama today in Richmond.
