Mike Huckabee is, once again, watching the news so you don’t have to! He’s got a weird roundup of headlines this time, covering everything from crazy protestors to a french fry-loving camel. Don’t miss this week’s episode of “In Case You Missed It” here on Huckabee!
Michael Dale Huckabee was born on 24 August 1955 in Hope, Arkansas, United States to a family of Protestant English-Americans that came to America during the colonial era. In 1972, his American Legion chapter named him “Governor of Arkansas”, and he was involved in his high school’s student leadership. Huckabee graduated from Ouachita Baptist University and gained a bachelor’s degree in religion, but he dropped out of a seminary after one year to become a religious broadcaster, a job which led to his election as President of the Arkansas Baptist State Convention in 1989-1991. In 1993, he was only the second US Republican Party politician to be elected Lieutenant-Governor of Arkansas since Reconstruction after Maurice Brit (from 1967-1971). He served under Democratic governor Jim Guy Tucker, but the two were on opposite sides of many issues, and in 1996 he was fortunate when Tucker was arrested for embezzling $3 million, allowing Huckabee to become the new Governor of Arkansas.
During Huckabee’s tenure as governor, he gave more pardons to prisoners than any other governor, but 92% of all clemency requests were denied and the size of prisons and the number of executions increased under him. He served as governor for ten and a half years, and in January 2007 he left office as Mike Beebe took office.
If you or your family members do not know Jesus, remember Jesus died for everyone and made it simple. Call on the name of Jesus and you shall be saved. Then, you will be in Heaven with all other believers!
