Mike Huckabee, former governor of Arkansas, will be the keynote speaker at an American Renewal Project event scheduled for Thursday and Friday in Little Rock. A group of Iowa evangelical pastors plans to meet with him privately during the event.
A team of Iowa pastors will meet privately with televangelist conservative Mike Huckabee at an event in Arkansas next week to talk to him about running for president in 2016, the evangelical leaders told The Des Moines Register Thursday.
“I don’t know if you’d call it a recruitment tour or not — some people are still interested in finding out where he is on some issues,” said Brad Sherman, pastor at Solid Rock Christian Church in Coralville, who is one of the Iowans in the delegation. “But at this point, I’m probably in his corner.”
Huckabee, a former Baptist minister and former governor of Arkansas, will be the keynote speaker at an American Renewal Project event scheduled for Thursday and Friday in Little Rock. The renewal project, led by conservative Christian activist David Lane, works in about a dozen key states, including Iowa, to encourage conservative Christians to get more involved in civil government.
