Potential Republican Presidential wannabe Mike Huckabee needs to make up his mind if he wants to be a contender for 2012.
The former Arkansas Governor gets high poll numbers among likely GOP voters but time is running short and Huckabee is still on the fence.
“Nobody knows what is going to decide,” Randy Davis, an rabid supporter of Huckabee in Iowa, told Reuters. “I’ve tried to encourage everyone to be patient.”
But patience is wearing thin among the GOP faithful who are looking for someone — anyone — to become the standard bearer for a 2012 race against Barack Obama.
Republicans have become so desperate that they are even looking at flamboyant real estate developer Donald Trump — king of the comb overs — as a serious Presidential contender.
As other candidates create “exploratory” committees and hire staff, Huckabee continues to ponder and avoid direct answers about his plans.
He bristles at those who say he is not running.
“How do you know that? I don’t know yet,” he said in a radio interview in March.
Huckabee is a potential tea party favorite but other darlings of the faux grassroots movement are flocking to Michelle Bachmann and Rick Santorum, who are already working the voters in Iowa.
