Former Arkansas Governor and 2008 Republican presidential primary candidate Mike Huckabee is beefing up his Golden State grassroots, launching a new online headquarters and a Facebook page for California volunteers he’s soliciting to his “Huck PAC,” working nationwide to elect conservatives.
“We have set a goal of registering 100 members in our headquarters by Sunday at midnight. We are 89 members away from reaching that goal. Membership is free and by joining our team of volunteers our grassroots leaders will be able to keep you informed of our efforts in California and nationally and give you the opportunity to pitch in when you can,” he wrote in the e-mail. “We have set a goal of 250 new supporters on Facebook by Sunday at midnight. If you are a Facebook user, please join today!”
The memo said news reports of the “government takeover of health care,” “repeal of the Defense of Marriage Act,” a “cap and tax” approach to climate change and energy policy, and attacks on “the Sanctity of Life” mean “conservative ideas are under assault by the Democrats in Washington.”
“Republicans are on the move and it’s time we all get involved,” he wrote.
And they’d be strong grassroots for a 2012 presidential campaign, too, wouldn’t they?
