An interesting question has surfaced as presidential candidate Mike Huckabee surges in the race for Republican nominee. If you pay attention to the blogs or talk radio hosts like Hugh Hewitt, the discussion has become Mike Huckabee is unelectable as a conservative evangelical Christian Republican. Hewitt has gone as far as saying that Huckabee will be eaten alive by whoever wins the Democratic nomination.
That leads to the question of whether Mike Huckabee would be the 2008 version of Len Munsil?
In the 2006 Arizona gubernatorial contest, conservative, Christian, evangelical, activist, Len Munsil, lost to incumbent liberal Democrat Governor, Janet Napolitano in a landside.
Given Mike Huckabee’s attractiveness to cultural conservatives, is history bound to repeat itself at the national level as Huckabee?
