Huckabee Staff Moving On

Another member of the Iowa team that propelled former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) to victory in the 2008 caucuses is signing on with somebody else, the latest sign that Huckabee isn't likely to run for president.

Wes Enos, who served as Iowa political director to Huckabee in 2008, has signed on as a consultant to Rep. Michele Bachmann's (R-Minn.) PAC, Minnesota Public Radio reports. Eric Woolson, another key Huckabee 2008 Iowa staffer, previously committed to working for former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R).

And Huckabee's campaign manager in 2008, Chip Saltsman, is working as a chief of staff for freshman Rep. Chuck Fleischmann (R-Tenn.).

Huckabee has not closed the door on another run, but if he does make a second White House bid, it looks more and more like he will be doing it without the same pieces that were in place in 2008 for his critical Hawkeye State victory.
