Huckabee reacts to Palin pick

Here’s Mike Huckabee’s response to John McCain’s selection of Gov. Sarah Palin, R-Alaska, as his running mate:

“Sarah Palin is a pleasant surprise for those of us who had hoped that Sen. McCain would pick a principled and authentic conservative pro-life leader and Sarah Palin is. As a Governor, she also brings an important balance of understanding of the critical domestic issues that is needed and that the Democrats have ignored in their ticket.

“Gov. Palin is smart, authentic, tough, and a dynamic choice that will remind women that if they are not welcome on the Democrat’s ticket, they have a place with Republicans.”

Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor, lost his bid for the GOP nomination to the White House this year. He had been considered a contender for McCain’s VP spot.
