Huckabee to Campaign for P’Pool

Raising more eyebrows in Kentucky’s race for attorney general, Republican candidate Todd P’Pool announced Tuesday that former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee will headline a campaign fundraiser in October.

A former presidential candidate and current Fox News host, Huckabee is another big name conservative coming to the commonwealth to campaign for P’Pool. Last week, the campaign announced Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is attending a fundraiser in Elizabethtown, which further highlighted the GOP nominee’s attempts to nationalize the race againstDemocratic Attorney General Jack Conway.

“Governor Huckabee is one of the strongest advocates for conservatism in America today,” says P’Pool. “Our shared values of being pro-life, pro-family, and pro-Second Amendment are currently lacking in Kentucky because we have a Barack Obama enthusiast in the attorney general’s office.”

The fundraiser featuring Huckabee will be held at the home of former U.S. Ambassador Cathy Bailey, a major GOP contributor who is also supporting P’Pool.
