Huckabee to Announce on Meet the Press?

Mike Huckabee will be on Meet the Press with Tim Russert this Sunday morning, and it is very likely that he will make his announcement.

This from the Meet the Press site.

"With the 2008 presidential campaign season already in full-force, we will have an exclusive interview with the former Republican governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee, about his future political plans. Will he make a run for the White House? Find out Sunday."

It seems that Meet the Press have the exclusive on Huckabee's decision to run for the Republican nomination.

As already reported here, Huckabee will be following up with a trip to key state Iowa on Tuesday and Wednesday, followed by an appearance on Fox News on Thursday.

This will be a good week for Huckabee to announce - the last two weeks the media have been consumed with the Clinton and Obama announcements, the State of the Union Address and the Senate hearings on Iraq. The clear air will work very much in Huckabee's favour.


An anonymous official from the Huckabee camp has confirmed that he will be lodging papers on Monday for an exploratory committee.
