National HuckPAC Volunteers are Helping McDonnell
HuckPAC, the political action committee founded by former Arkansas governor, presidential hopeful and Fox News commentator Mike Huckabee, has taken an early and intense interest in Bob McDonnell's run for governor.
Huckabee himself has campaigned for McDonnell in Virginia. In the latest show of support, volunteers from across the country made nearly 11,000 phone calls to Virginia voters on Saturday as part of a phone-banking effort organized by the group, talking up the Republican candidate's pro-life record, his support of gun rights and his efforts to create jobs and spur the economy.
"One of the things we learned during our campaign is that we're not going to be able to do much by way of money," said Sarah Huckabee, executive director of the organization and daughter of the former governor. "But one of ... our strengths is our grass roots, our ability to get ordinary people to make extraordinary sacrifices and roll up their sleeves and get to work."
Expect to hear more from this group and others like it as the November election approaches. Organizers aim to have at least one more telephone outreach effort, and hope to bus activists into the state to knock on doors and volunteer.
