Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said Saturday night he will not seek the Republican presidential nomination despite a long publicity build-up that he orchestrated, dropping hints along the way that he would take the plunge.
The announcement rendered mute for the moment a dispute legal experts were having over whether he could use his own Fox News TV show to announced a run for the nomination.
â€œI will not seek the Republican nomination for president this year,â€ Mr. Huckabee said on his show on Saturday night.
â€œMy heart says no,â€ he said but added that he intends to help other republican candidates.
He said it was unthinkable that he would undertake a run for the GOP nomination without the Lordâ€™s blessings â€“ and that rather than the certain knowledge that his wife and children would come in for â€œbrutalâ€ and â€œsavageâ€ attacks if he ran caused him to say no.
He said his wife actually encouraged him to run.
But David Lane, a long-time Huckabee friend who organizes pastors around the country for conservative causes, was not surprised at the decision.
