Talking Points Memo reports
that Mike Huckabee's endorsement by the Jim Bob Duggar family of "19 Kids and Counting" and sexual molestation fame has been dropped from his campaign website.

He was asked at a news conference yesterday by KATV's Elicia Dover whether the Duggars would campaign with him. His response: "It'll be up to them. Ask them." 

I'd rather ask the Huckster, but as you know he's declared the Arkansas Times non-persons along with the Duggars. Said Talking Points Memo:

The Duggar endorsements enjoyed top billing on the campaign site's "I Like Mike" sidebar on May 22, the day Huckabee issued a full-throated defense of the family following the publication of a 2006 police report that showed the Duggar's eldest son, Josh, was investigated for molesting five underage girls when he was a teenager. 

... Jim Bob, a former Arkansas state representative, and Michelle Duggar endorsed Huckabee both for his 2008 and 2016 presidential campaigns. Their endorsements did not appear in the "I Like Mike" section of the site Thursday morning. Archived versions of the campaign site show that the endorsements were removed sometime Monday night.
