Cue "The Beverly Hillbillies" theme song. Mike Huckabee says his fund-raising (UPDATE: link to Nashua, N.H. Telegraph story is no longer working and I can't find a copy just yet) is really picking up, with a round of 19 events scheduled, including one by an unnamed "Beverly Hills billionaire" who Huckabee said is "intrigued" by his candidacy. Swimming pools. Movie stars. The first thing you know, ol' Mike's a contender.
