Janet Huckabee, wife of GOP candidate Mike Huckabee and the former first lady of Arkansas, sits down with Michele Norris. It's part of a series of conversations with spouses of the presidential hopefuls, many of whom are playing very active roles in the campaigns.

Mike Huckabee is second in the Iowa polls but first in some conservatives' hearts — certainly his wife's.

Janet Huckabee spends a lot of time campaigning for her husband, the former governor of Arkansas.

The Huckabees' story is a well-worn part of the stump speech: Junior high sweethearts from Hope, Ark. Three decades of marriage. Three children.

Janet Huckabee says her priorities are faith, family and friends. Right now, there's a fourth "F" — fighting to get her husband the attention she thinks he deserves. And she says she's learned her husband is quite the fighter, too.
