Huckabee Will Not Run for President

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee (R) announced Saturday that he won't run for president in 2012, removing a strong contender from the field and underscoring the volatility and wide-open nature of the Republican nominating contest.

"My answer is clear and firm. I will not seek the Republican nomination for president," Huckabee said Saturday evening.


Huckabee said that despite external pressure to run, and supreme confidence that he could win the Republican nomination, he couldn't bring himself to pull the trigger. "All the factors say go, but my heart says no," Huckabee said. "And that's the decision that I have made."
