Page 1 of 3
Michael Dale Huckabee served as the 44th Governor of Arkansas and current host of the Fox News Channel talk show Huckabee. He was a candidate for President in 2008, finishing second in delegate count as a result of the 2008 United States Republican presidential primaries. Following losses to John McCain in the Texas, Ohio, Vermont, and Rhode Island primaries, Huckabee exited the race on March 4, 2008 as McCain became the presumptive Republican nominee.
Mike Huckabee was born Aug. 24, 1955, in Hope, Arkansas, the same small town where former U.S. President Bill Clinton was born nine years earlier.
Huckabee's strict father worked as a firefighter father who on in his days off worked as a mechanic. In the mid-sixties, he joined Garrett Memorial Baptist Church and became involved in church activities.
Timid and a bit of a klutz, Huckabee found salvation in words and music. He started playing guitar at age 11 (to this day, he occasionally plays bass with the Arkansas rock band, Capitol Offense) and became a champion public speaker and debater. He preached his first sermon as a teenager.
Huckabee is the author of several best selling books, an ordained Southern Baptist minister, musician and a public speaker. He is also an ABC Radio political commentator. He and his wife, Janet, have been married for 33 years and have three grown children: John Mark, David, and Sarah.
