Mike Huckabee is in a third place in the Rasmussen national presidential tracking poll. This is how it breaks down.

Giuliani 24%
Thompson 16%
Mike Huckabee 14%

Imagine what he could do with a little bit more money. If you haven't already, you should donate. Every little bit helps.

Mike Huckabee at Prestonwood and New Beginnings

I had a great time today going to New Beginnings Church in Irving, TX and Prestonwood Baptist Church north of Dallas. New Beginnings was an interested mix of Messianic Jew, Black Gospel, and community church. Gov. Huckabee did a great job on his sermon. It was about how God can use evil for good with examples from the Bible like Joseph and examples from his own life. Gov. Huckabee was interrupted several times by clapping and sometimes with standing ovations. The pastor there was very bold with his praise and practically endorsed Gov. Huckabee from the pulpit. When his talk was over, I made my way to the car and crossed paths with him. I saw me out of the corner of his eye, turned toward me, and warmly shook my hand. I then drove to Prestonwood. I got a little bit lost and so missed the first part of the lesson. I had expected to hear the same speech, but I was pleasantly suprised. This sermon was about how God has good plans for us and that it is our job to prepare for those good things. He said that when the world sees that Christians are not preparing to recieve blessings they know that we have little faith. Gov. Huckabee was well received at this church as well. At the end of the service I got this picture of him before he was ushered on to his next appointment. Afterward I heard several people mention how they thought that he did a good job and how important they thought these primaries are. I was proud to have been there.

Here's what the Dallas Morning News had to say:

I also enjoyed this article about it from the Baptist Press (though I am not a Baptist).
