Huckabee Announces…a Date to Announce His Decision

By Mark Joyella 

Tonight, Mike Huckabee told Fox News’ Bret Baier he would make his decision on a 2016 presidential run public in a speech next month in Arkansas. “I will announce on May the fifth in my hometown of Hope, Arkansas, what my plans are going to be,” Huckabee said on FNC’s “Special Report.”

“People will know then for sure whether Mike Huckabee is in the race or not,” he told Baier. “I think it’ll be worth tuning in for.”

After a morning session with reporters in Washington Friday, many assumed Huckabee would make his decision known today.
