Huckabee Names Ed Rollins National Campaign Chairman

Republican Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee has named Ed Rollins as his National Campaign Chairman.

Rollins served as the National Campaign Director to Ronald Reagan in the 1984 presidential election in which Reagan won 49 states while defeating former Vice President Walter Mondale.

Rollins will make it possible for Huckabee to be portrayed as the second coming of Reagan:

“I can promise this man comes as close to anyone as filling those shoes,” Rollins said, joking that “this is the only campaign I’ve ever been in where there are no doughnuts and booze.”
With the appointment of Rollins and Huckabee now surging in poll after poll I was clearly wrong in assuming that Huckabee was no more than a distraction that would scare the living daylights out of a lot of moderates of both parties.

You can watch Rollins discuss his new gig with Lou Dobbs in the following video:
