“I know that there’s some speculation that I might come here today to announce that I will be getting out of the race, and I want to make sure you understand: Am I quitting? Let’s get that settled right now. No, I am not,” said Mike Huckabee in his speech at CPAC this morning. It got an enthusiastic reception. Invoking pundits who point out that it’s almost mathematically impossible for him to win, Huckabee said “I didn’t major in math. I majored in miracles.” I guess that explains his support for the FairTax.
At a press availability after the speech, I asked Huckabee whether he was fighting on to the convention no matter what, or if he would drop out after McCain reaches the 1191 delegate mark. “I know I won’t drop out until at least that happens, and then we’ll see,” he said.
