  • For months, Republican presidential candidates with dwindling bank accounts and negligible support in polls have been finding reasons to stay in the 2016 race. Now, a few must weigh whether they can keep competing after being downgraded or excluded from Tuesday's fourth GOP debate. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee have been bumped to the undercard debate because of low poll numbers, while South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and former New York Gov. George Pataki didn't qualify for either event.
  • Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has no idea why the 14th Amendment happened. Huckabee told radio host Michael Medved that the Supreme Court's 1857 Dred Scott v. Sandford decision, which denied citizenship to black Americans, is still the "law of the land" — in an attempt to show that it's okay for people to ignore Supreme Court rulings (particularly the June marriage equality decision) that they disagree with. "Michael, the Dred Scott decision of 1857 still remains to this day the law of the land, which says that black people aren't fully human," he said. "Does anybody still follow the Dred Scott Supreme Court decision?"

That’s judicial tyranny.”
  • Mike Huckabee joined the growing pack of 2016 presidential candidates skeptical about climate science on Sunday. "I know that when I was in college I was being taught that if we didn't act very quickly, that we were going to be entering a global freezing," he told "Meet The Press." "Go back and look at the covers of Time and Newsweek from the early '70s. And we were told that if we didn't do something by 1980, we'd be popsicles. Now we're told that we're all burning up. Science is not as settled on that as it is on some things.”
  • Speaking with Fox News’s Chris Wallace, presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee announced that if elected president he would not listen to the Supreme Court if they ruled in favor of same-sex marriage because the court is not the “supreme being.” - See more at: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/danthropology/2015/05/mike-huckabee-says-as-president-he-would-follow-the-supreme-being-and-not-the-supreme-court-on-gay-marriage/#sthash.Jv9Pf8dZ.dpuf

The 59-year-old has hinted for over a year that he might run in 2016 after he sat out the 2012 race and failed to win the nomination in 2008.
