There’s no reason to think they will suddenly start doing it.”Huckabee said about the deal: “I read the entire thing. We gave away the whole farm. It’s got to be stopped.”Huckabee’s comments come as the Republican presidential candidates struggle to break through with 16 presidential candidates already in the Republican field, and one of those, New York businessman Donald Trump, getting more attention than most.Copyright © The Associated Press.
