Was the FairTax Huckabee’s Secret Weapon?
by

While the conventional wisdom is that social conservatives were behind Mike Huckabee’s surprise showing at Ames, Soren Dayton makes the case that it was actually Huckabee’s support for the fair tax. As Soren points out, while Huckabee didn’t have any buses, the FairTax group had 20-30, and Huck is the only candidate to endorse the idea. If true, this would be ironic, as Soren points out, because he has by far the worst record on taxes of any Republican candidate.

CORRECTION: Tom Tancredo and Duncan Hunter have co-sponsored fair
tax legislation, and McCain, Paul, and Tommy Thompson said they would sign the legislation.
