Huckabee TV

Mike Huckabee's presidential campaign, struggling for money and a presence in Florida, says it has a new national ad airing, but wouldn't disclose the extent of the buy, saying only it is running "on various national cable programs."

The campaign says the ad, "Common Sense, highlights Huckabee’s Main Street message and the need for major reform in Washington, beginning with abolishing the IRS and ensuring that taxation, regulation, litigation are kept to the bare minimum."

"The IRS penalizes productivity," Huckabee says in the 30-second spot. "Small business owners face their toughest competition from their own government. Excessive taxation, regulation, and litigation leads to job migration. Let's change this nonsense to common sense. I want to be the president who nails the 'going out of business' sign on the door of the IRS. Visit and join our team. I'm Mike Huckabee and I approve this message and I'll lead the fight to abolish the IRS; and we'll keep our jobs and paychecks."
