Dueling Arkansas Republicans In Iowa
It is well known in Republican circles that former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee feuded with the conservative members of the state Republican party during his tenure. The Ron Paul for President campaign wanted Iowans to know it too. They recently hired two former Arkansas legislators: Representative Randy Minton and State Senator Jim Holt to spend a week in Iowa telling people about the Mike Huckabee they knew. "He campaigned right and governed left" Holt told Iowans this week. Holt and Huckabee most often clashed over spending, education, and of course, illegal immigration. Minton now serves with the Arkansas Republican Assembly, whose conservative members are full of angst for the former Governor.
Huckabee did not take it lying down. He brought in several ringers of his own to tell his side of it. They include current Senator Gilber Baker, along with former legislators Doyle Webb and Doug Matayo.
