The Surge is On

It's here, folks. The Huckabee Surge is hitting the Nation. The latest Rasmussen Reports poll has Mike Huckabee sitting at 13%, tied for 3rd with McCain. Mitt "Moneybags" Romney is at 12%.

All of the latest Iowa polls have the Governor tied for second. Huckabee is in double digits in the latest South Carolina and New Hampshire polls.

There are just TWO more days to complete the OCTOBER CHALLENGE. If you have participated in the Challenge, please leave a comment as to your results. I plan on posting them when I get feedback.

The Huckabee campaign has raised $881,305.80 online so far this month. The goal for October is to raise $1,034,487 online; we're almost there! We need to raise $153,181.20 in online contributions BY midnight of October 31st!

Huckabee outrunning his GOP companions

Huckabee outrunning his GOP companions

By Scot Lehigh, Globe Columnist October 24, 2007

Concord, N.H.

THE BEST description of what's happening with Mike Huckabee may just be the old joke about the two lawyers who are out on a hike when they startle a large bear. The first lawyer whips open his briefcase, removes a pair of running shoes, and puts them on.

"Do you really think you can outrun the bear?" the second asks.

His companion offers this, ah, grizzly reply: "I don't have to outrun the bear. I just have to outrun you."

Outrunning one's companions has long been the challenge for the second-tier presidential candidates in this large Republican field. It's a challenge Huckabee has steadily met.

News Alert: Brownback to drop out?

Brownback expected to drop out of GOP field

Kansas Senator Sam Brownback is about to drop out of the Republican presidential nomination race, the Associated Press is reporting this morning.

Brownback aimed squarely at support from religious conservatives, but he finished behind former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee -- who is seeking the same voters -- in the Ames straw poll in Iowa in August and has not recovered.

This week, he reporting raising a little more than $800,000 in the third quarter of this year, his lowest quarterly amount since entering the race. Brownback appeared this week before the Globe's editorial board and talked about his efforts to reach out to Democrats and independents on issues such as aid to Africa and a congressional resolution apologizing for slavery.

The AP said he is expected announce his withdrawal on Friday in Topeka, Kan. "I know Senator Brownback enjoyed campaigning and meeting new people in talking about ideas for the future of America, but I think it came down to money," one person close to Brownback, who requested anonymity because the candidate had not yet announced his plans, told the AP.

Brownback's withdrawal is expected to help Huckabee, but could also help the prospects of Mitt Romney, who is also aggressively seeking the support of evangelical Christians.

3Q Total: $1.018M

I was greeted this morning by the rather disappointing 3Q fundraising total of $1.018M for the Huckabee Campaign. I was really hoping for over $1.5M.

Then I went over to One Mom's blog (by the way, if you've never been there, she has one of the best Huckabee blogs out there). She has a great, encouraging post about the 3Q totals.

Then I went to Huckabee Hound. Another great post about the money Huckabee raised.

Folks, don't walk around with your heads down! Why should we? We're supporting the best candidate out there! Besides, we raised more money in the 3Q than in either of the other Quarters! The Huckabee campaign is one of only 2 or 3 that actually raised more money than the last quarter!

We're talking about the candidate who spent pennies compared to everyone else at the Iowa Straw Poll, and still came out in 2nd. We're talking about frugality personified!

So, get those heads up, and keep fighting. We're in the middle of the boxing match, and that trophy is calling our name!

National Polls, October Challenge, and ARG

National Polling: Romney and Giuliani are dropping. McCain spiked when Fred Thompson got in (Fred jumped as well), but they're both slipping a little. Mike Huckabee looks like the only one still gaining ground nationally, although he's dropped some in IA, NH and SC.

October Challenge: Today is the offical start of OKforHuckabee's OCTOBER CHALLENGE. I'm planning on starting to email all the Oklahoma Republican legislators in the coming days. In fact, my first emails to State Representatives just went out... the first of many emails to come.

American Research Group: I'm beginning to wonder about the accuracy of ARG's polls. They've always been somewhat different than the other polls.

Newsweek Iowa Poll:

First Choice:
Mitt Romney 25%
Fred Thompson 16%
Rudy Giuliani 15%
John McCain 7%
Mike Huckabee 6%
Sam Brownback 3%
Tom tancredo 3%
Ron Paul 2%
Duncan Hunter 1%
Undecided 21%

Mitt Romney 24%
Fred Thompson 16%
Rudy Giuliani 13%
Mike Huckabee 12%
John McCain 9%
Ron Paul 5%
Tom Tancredo 3%
Sam Brownback 2%
Duncan Hunter 1%
Undecided 15%

(Note: The set-up for this poll was slightly confusing...)
