Former governor and current presidential candidate Mike Huckabee (R-Ark.) isn't a household name inside the Beltway. He's hoping to change that today as he announces the congressional co-chairs of his national bid.
Reps. Don Young (Alaska) and John Boozman (Ark.) will lead Huckabee's efforts to make inroads among the opinion leaders on Capitol Hill.
Asked about winning congressional endorsements, Huckabee said "it shows [that] people who are policy makers are willing to sign on," but he added: "Frankly, I don't think it's going to tip the election one way or another."
The new Politico website gives it a bit more attention.
