Presidential Candidate Mike Huckabee24:43

This article is more than 12 years old.

Right behind the big three Republican presidential candidates in Iowa polls stands a man who ought to fill the bill for GOP conservatives.

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is famous for losing 110 pounds before jumping into the presidential race.

He's an ordained Baptist preacher who's a little tired of being asked about evolution in GOP debates, but not tired of saying he's the real and realistic conservative.

Weirdly, like Bill Clinton, Huckabee's also from the little town of Hope. And his record in Arkansas is interesting.

This hour On Point: the other man from Hope, AK - GOP White House contender Mike Huckabee.
