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.

This team is good news for Huckabee...

are you out of your mind?

It's christmas guys, spend some time with your families-that goes for the huckman too...

Webster, Rivera, DLp and the speaker- is Jeb Bush next?

Well, that team knocks me out for Huckabee. I did like him, he seemed like a decent guy. But, you have to look at who people surround themselves with. If Huckabee has the poor judgement to surround himselves with these incredibly evil people, he can't be a good guy.

Huck...just discovered cuba!! The co-chairs should be ashamed of themselves. Huckabee will call for invasion of cuba, if he thought it would get him votes.
