Huckabee endorses a candidate who was going to promise not to run

S.C. Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer was going to promise not to run in return for being appointed governer if Gov. Mark Sanford resigned after his Appalachian Trail hike to Argentina.

The odd ploy failed and Bauer, who in a recent poll is tied with Attorney General Henry McMaster (both at 22%) and losing to “no answer” (28%) in the race for the S.C. Republican gubernatorial nomination, was endorsed yesterday by former Southern Baptist pastor Mike Huckabee.

That has attracted some attention of LGBT blogs for various reasons, a little from the mainstream press and not much notice from political blogs.

Huckabee’s endorsement looks like payback since the Methodist former Irmo (S.C.) High School varsity cheerleader, then Lt. Gov., endorsed Huckabee for president in 2008.

Go, guys?
