Mike Huckabee, the former Republican presidential hopeful, has been tapped by Fox News Channel as its latest political commentator. “Gov. Huckabee’s campaign experience and knowledge of politics makes him a great addition to our ongoing election coverage," Bill Shine, FNC SVP/Programming, said in a statement. Huckabee, who served as governor of Arkansas for 10 1/2 years, dropped out of the race in March, after John McCain won enough delegates to clinch the Republican nomination.
"I hope to bring the unique perspective from `inside the dragon’s belly’ as well as to try and speak for the millions of hardworking middle-class Americans who really do feel that their voices are not being heard," Huckabee said. "I saw that on the campaign trail and continue to see as I speak to groups of all kinds around the country as well as campaign for other candidates."
