Presidential Candidate comes to Ballentine!

Former Governor Mike Huckabee marks the fourth Presidential Candidate to know the importance of meeting your friends and neighbors. (Note: Senator Sam Brownback, who earlier walked in the Chapin Labor Day Parade, has since withdrawn from the race.)

If today’s polling means anything, I’d suggest all the candidates spend some time here to boost their campaign.

From WLTX:

Irmo – After spending time at Williams-Brice Stadium on Saturday night for the Carolina-Clemson football game, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee spent Sunday morning with members of Gateway Baptist Church in Irmo.

The Presidential candidate spent time talking with members of the church as well as signing copies of his book, “Quit Digging Your Grave with a Knife and Fork,” which is a guide to healthy eating.

One of the first statements he said in front of the entire congregation was, “I’m not here today in a political capacity.”

Huckabee went on to say that he wouldn’t mention Saturday’s in-state rivalry football game between the Tigers and Gamecocks. Instead he commented on the Arkansas Razorbacks’ defeat over the #1 ranked LSU Tigers. “Most everybody in the entire Southeast Conference enjoys LSU getting beat as much as we enjoyed getting to beat them the other day.”
