Huckabee Gaining In Iowa, Fred Thompson Responds, New Hampshire Notices

A quick update. The campaign is moving forward buoyed by recent polls in Iowa showing significant gains. I am including a link to these polls below.

Fred Thompson turned down Governor Huckabee's acceptance of a Lincoln-Douglas styled debate. It's too bad. America clearly agreed with Governor Huckabee's suggestion, as over 2,000 voters co-signed Governor Huckabee's letter asking Fred Thompson to debate him. From news accounts, it appears that Fred Thompson also declined an opportunity to discuss the issues at the Values Voter Debate next week in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

We had our best week of website traffic last week. We added over 30 Bloggers for Huckabee and had a strong surge in online fundraising. After you review the news below, I encourage you to take 2-3 minutes of your time and complete our action items for this week. Thank you for your continued support of Governor Huckabee's campaign.
