Huckabee's Miami team

Surging GOP'er Mike Huckabee, who picked up campaign cash last night in Miami, picked up support from two more Cuban-American legislators.

House Speaker Marco Rubio is co-chairing Huckabee's Florida operations and colleagues, Rep. David Rivera, R-Miami and Sen. Alex Diaz de la Portilla, R-Miami, have signed up as honorary co-chairs of Huckabee's Miami-Dade campaign.

"Gov. Huckabee is a leader who understands the value of freedom and democracy," Rivera said of Huckabee, a former Arkansas governor who once opposed the U.S. embargo on Cuba because of its effect on his state's rice industry. (He says he's now pro-embargo.) "He has demonstrated his commitment to these principles by taking a strong pro-active stance on US policy toward Cuba."

Huckabee, whose recent rise in the polls is shaking up the GOP primary, is raising dollars in Orlando today before flying to Iowa.
