Little Rock, Ark. – Presidential candidate and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee will discuss his vision for America’s future at a National Press Club luncheon on Thursday, June 7.

He has received numerous honors, such as Governing Magazine’s “Public Official of the Year,” been selected by Time Magazine as one of the nation’s top "Five Best Governors," and has received the AARP’s prestigious “Impact Award.”
