Huckabee in Texas

texas_flag_1.jpgMike Huckabee is no longer lonely in the Lone Star state. The Dallas Morning News reports that Huck has assembled a base of evangelicals to turn out his people on March 4. Additionally, Huck released a statement today stating that he recieved the endorsement of state senator Dan Patrick. Patrick on Huckabee: "As a committed Christian, I appreciate and respect his unabashed commitment to put God first in everything he does. His stance on pro-life, pro-marriage and pro-family issues are important to Texas." This is important because Texas apportions their delegates based on local congressional districts. If Patrick and Co. are able to deliver districts for Huck, this will further slow McCain's inevitable capture of 1,191 delegates.
