GOP 2012…..Huckabee pulls ahead……….and works the money train…..

It seems that in the early race for the GOP nod for the 2012 Presidential run, former Arkansas Republican Governor,  Mike Huckabee has pulled ahead………A new Rasmussen Poll…has him leading Romney ( who\’s PAC has $2 million vs Hucks $430,000, or so ) by  44% to 39% …….now I know it’s three years out…but the race has already begun and will be the exclusive primary story since Obama will be the democratic nominee………..

And just in case you didn’t  know this……Huckabee favors the conservative republican, Marco Rubio in Florida, over the moderate republican Governor Charlie Crist in that states run for the senate…..Says Huckabee of Rubio…..“It stunned me when the [National Republican Senatorial Committee] came out and made an endorsement for Charlie Crist in that race. That was absurd,” Huckabee said. “Guys like Marco are the future of the party. What I see in him is what I want to see in all of our candidates.”.

The thought that Crist has clear sailing down there is increasing becoming clouded…….

Interestingly, right now Palin leads forever choice Newt Gingrich in that poll…….

Stay tuned for more……….

Republicans for 2012………

Over at Politico…they did today the first of many early pieces on the 2012 Presidential Race……..the democrats will run Obama for his second term (he’s only been President for few more than 200 day so far! ) but the list for the Republicans is very  long indeed, right now………

Romney, Gingrich, Huckabee and Palin round out my first tier…..the second tier would consist of ……Cantor, Thune and  DeMint…bringing up the rear would be Jindal,Barbour and, well yes, Pawlenty……..it is reported that these people  have spent over $12 million already ( and brought in about $30 million )………..it never ends……
