MIKE HUCKABEE told POLITICO last week that he has "not ruled out" a 2016 presidential run and added, "Am I informally chatting with people, asking if they think there’s any value in my taking it to another level? I’m having those conversations."
“At this point, I’m trying to ascertain, what’s the opportunity, what’s the field, where the names are,” the CUMULUS MEDIA NETWORKS host and former ARKANSAS Governor, who ran in 2008, told POLITICO's KATIE GLEUCK, adding that a campaign "may not be a possibility."
He said that declaring a candidacy too soon would be "a big mistake... People who get in too early are the ones who, by the time they need to be peaking, already peaked."
