After garnering only 2% of the vote tonight in Iowa, Mike Huckabee has announced he will drop out of the 2016 GOP presidential race.
Huckabee won the Iowa Republican Caucus in 2008, but he could not replicate the magic this time around.
The beginning of the end came when he was demoted to the GOP undercard debate stage in November. At the time he was demoted along with Chris Christie. While Christie got back to the main stage, Huckabee could not rise to the occasion.
The closest he came to generating any excitement when he parodied Adele’s “Hello” last week.
I should hasten to add that Huckabee (along with Rick Santorum) attended Donald Trump’s rally for veterans in Iowa following the GOP undercard debate. Perhaps Huckabee will soon formally endorse Trump. After the election, I guess we can expect him to strap on the bass guitar Saturday nights on FNC.
