Huckabee Launches Political Action Committee, May Run In 2012

Last week, mikehuckabee.com featured a "Doomsday clock" apparently designed to drum up excitement for the former presidential candidate's next project. Now the wait, as it were, is over: Ladies and gentlemen, it's Huck PAC.

Huckabee's political action committee is "committed to supporting Republican candidates who are passionate advocates for tax reform, a strong national defense, real border security, life, the family, less government and individual liberty," according to Huckabee's introductory blog post.

Among those whom Huckabee is supporting is presumptive GOP nominee John McCain. "Huck PAC is committed to helping Republicans regain control of the House and Senate, regain a majority of governorships and elect John McCain as the 44th President of the United States," says the site's mission statement.

The former Arkansas governor, who is writing a book and giving paid speeches, told supporters during a Thursday conference call that he could run for president again in four years. He also criticized religious leaders who failed to rally around him in his recent presidential run.

"Some people really worshipped at the altar of electability rather than to be faithful and loyal to the principles they were supposed to be committed to," he said, according to The Morning News. "When it gets to their own political realm, they think more secularly than even the secular people. That was very troubling."
