Huckabee: Washington State Vote Like the Soviet Union
Is the McCain camp relying on Communist tactics to get more delegates? CNN reports that Mike Huckabee seems to think that:
Mike Huckabee continued to cry foul Monday over the results in Saturday’s Washington State GOP caucuses, saying the state party chairman’s decision to call the race there early for John McCain is reminiscent of elections in communist bloc nations. “That is not what we do in American elections,” Huckabee said on CNN’s American Morning Monday. “Maybe that’s how they used to conduct it in the old Soviet Union, but you don’t just throw people’s votes out and say, ‘well, we’re not going to bother counting them because we kind of think we know where this was going.’ In a statement released Sunday, Huckabee’s campaign said Washington’s GOP Party Chairman Luke Esser called the race for McCain when Huckabee was only losing to the Arizona senator by 242 votes and over 1,500 votes remained to be counted. Esser has said he remains confident he made the right call. Speaking on CNN, Huckabee said the campaign has sent lawyers to the state to formally challenge the result. “I was just stunned,” Huckabee said. “It’s the kind of thing that Republicans across America, not just in Washington State, ought to be outraged over.”
Gee – I bet Al Gore knows where Huck is coming from. We would have had full recount of the Florida vote in 2000 but the Supreme Court decided it wouldn’t be prudent.
