He told CNN he respects McCain and “would certainly vote for him before I would vote for Hillary or Obama.”
“Some people need to switch to decaf and realize, folks, we may not get all of our battles just like we want, but there’s a larger context in which this has to be fought,” Huckabee added.
The public comments of support for McCain in no way mean Huckabee is dropping out or that he is considering a spot as his running mate.
On NBC’s “Today” show, Huckabee said, “We’re going to be opponents over the next several weeks, and we’re not going to be talking about a marriage. We’re going to be talking about both trying to go after the same bride.”
