Don't leave former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) out of the 2016 conversation just yet.
Speaking with Newsmax TV in a recent interview, the 2008 presidential candidate said he wouldn't shut any doors on a future White House run.
“Yeah, I’m not ruling it out at this point," he said. “I’m not sitting around having meetings with the strategic team, but it’s something I will certainly look at, and I’m talking to some people just to determine whether it’s a kamikaze raid or whether it has potential and possibility.”
Huckabee was considered a top contender for a period in the 2008 Republican primary after performing strongly in a number of early contests, including a first-place finish in the Iowa caucuses. He would later drop out of the race after it became clear that Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) would take the GOP nomination with a win in Texas.
The Baptist minister and bassist has since turned to conservative media, where he has a radio program and a weekend Fox News show called "Huckabee."
