Texas Gov. Rick Perry has rounded up a number of Arkansas Republican supporters, but don't include that former Arkansan, Mike Huckabee, who once was governor.
He's continuing to dis Perry, a payback for Perry not giving The Huckster due deference in HIS presidential run. Wrote Huckabee in an e-mail to his followers:
Meanwhile, Texas Gov. Rick Perry, is still flirting with a run, and it's the type of flirting even his wife approves of. The Dallas Morning News reports that a campaign button collector ordered a “Perry for Governor 2010” button from Perry's office. What he got back was a button, all pressed and ready to go, that reads, “Perry — President — 2012.” So if Perry's not running, then that button will be a REAL collector's item. For all his new found commitment to hyper-conservatism, he’ll get to explain why he supported pro-abortion, pro-same sex marriage Rudy Guiliani last time.
