Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee spent primary day going from polling place. At his first stop he met up with former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and asked him for his vote. “I don’t think any of us can vote today,” Giuliani responded. The two candidates shook hands and parted.
Huckabee has said he doesn’t expect to win New Hampshire. New Hampshire does not have the strong evangelical Christian base that catapulted the former Arkansas governor to victory last week in Iowa.
Turnout appears to be brisk. The manager of a polling station in Rochester said one third of registered voters had cast ballots by 2:30 pm.
