CBS News had a great comment on the debate.

Huckabee, who has distinguished himself in the debates all year, turned in the strongest performance of the evening at a time when he´s beginning to become a force in the race. Time and time again, Huckabee stood out, giving thoughtful and eloquent answers to questions about immigration, taxes, the death penalty and the bible, which for an ordained Baptist minister is a familiar subject.

The Orlando Huckabee meetup group is gathering tomorrow at the Orlando Fashion Square Mall at 7:00 PM in the Food Court.
