Mr. MIKE HUCKABEE (Republican Presidential Candidate; Former Arkansas Governor): Tomorrow is the straw poll in Iowa. After you've spent most of your time and the biggest part of your money here in the state fair today, I wish you drive on up to Ames because we could use your vote in the straw poll.
