Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee disavowed his appearance in a new ad from Newt Gingrich attacking Mitt Romney.
In the ad, Huckabee is shown during his 2008 presidential campaign saying, "If a man's dishonest to get a job, he'll be dishonest on the job." A narrator then says, "What kind of man would mislead, distort, and deceive just to win an election?" This man would: Mitt Romney."
Huckabee said in a statement that the ad was ”not authorized, approved, or known in advance by me.” He also said on Fox News that he would prefer Gingrich take down the ad.
Huckabee also rebuked the Romney campaign for a Web ad that quoted him earlier this month. He has said he is not endorsing any of the primary candidates, but will back the eventual GOP nominee.
