Mike Huckabee to announce decision on presidential race Saturday


Mike Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, will announce Saturday whether he will run for the 2012 GOP presidential nomination.

“Gov. Huckabee will announce tomorrow night on his program whether or not he intends to explore a presidential bid,” said Woody Fraser, executive producer of Huckabee’s weekly show on Fox News Channel.

“He has not told anyone at Fox News Channel his decision,” Fraser said.


The show airs at 8 p.m. EDT.

Huckabee, who polls show would likely be a strong contender if he runs, also mounted a bid in 2008. In a surprise, he won the Iowa caucuses, but his candidacy soon faded.
