Conservative activists here in NH seem to be impressed with Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas. The southern Republican Governor who shares both a home state and home town with President Clinton recently spoke to hundreds of activists at local GOP events. The Governor also reportedly met with"prominent" Republicans privatley.
While few knew much about Huckabee before his first foray into Granite State politics once he left many liked what they had seen. One activist in attendance summarized the visit by saying, "He was a dynamic speaker, he was right on the issues, but his silence on national security issues was noticeable."
