Seth Blomeley of the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette yesterday asked Gov. Mike Huckabee for his opinion of Asa Hutchinson's latest television ad, which features children attributing a series of negative characteristics to Mike Beebe. (www.nwanews.com/adg/News/170699/)
Huckabee’s former campaign finance chairman, Ron Fuller of Little Rock, called the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette to say the ad was “disgraceful” and that Huckabee never would have approved something like that.
“I was certainly surprised by his comment,” Huckabee said. “I thought the ad Asa is running is clever, and I thought it was funny and effective and saw nothing offensive about it.”
Now, before you read any further, please swallow whatever you are eating or drinking.
Huckabee said, “For someone who wants to be governor, you have to develop a little thicker skin for something as lighthearted as that.”
