Huckabee Says He’s In Race Until GOP Nominee Is Final

WASHINGTON D.C. (AP) — Mike Huckabee says he has no plans to drop out of the race for president.

The former Arkansas governor who won the Iowa caucuses last month claims nobody thought he had a chance in the campaign but he’s “still on his feet.”

The comments come following a suggestion from Republican rival Mitt Romney that Huckabee may be staying in the race to split the conservative vote, a move that could boost the prospects of John McCain.

Huckabee denies that’s his strategy and even suggests that maybe Romney should get out of the race.

Huckabee vows to fight on until someone secures the GOP nomination. Some speculate Huckabee is maneuvering for a slot on the ticket as a vice-presidential candidate or looking for a say in the party platform.

Polls show him trailing McCain and Romney in many states.
