Huckabee: Today's Weather "A Concern"

(CBS)
From CBS News' Joy Lin:

COLUMBIA, S.C. -- "Our voters are like the post office. Neither rain nor sleet nor snow will keep them away," Huckabee told reporters this morning jostling to catch what he was saying in the rain. He and his wife Janet had arrived at a polling station to shake the hands of supporters.

In a less decisive tone, Huckabee told CBS News Radio Correspondent Peter King that weather is "always a concern" because no one is ever sure how the weather would influence the voting.

"Obviously the upstate is an important part of South Carolina for us," Huckabee said, noting the chance of snow in that region.

"We have to take the weather as it is. We don't get to choose," he continued. "I just hope our voters are so committed, it doesn't affect the fact they're going to go vote because they believe this is a mission."

On the undecided voters who were waiting until the last minute to make up their minds, Huckabee said, "They just don't know me. If they did, they'd already be out here decided for me."
