Fiorina and Huckabee Joining G.O.P. Race on Heels of Carsonposted on May 4, 2015
At The New York Times, Alan Rappeport reports that Carly Fiorina, former chief executive of Hewlett-Packard, and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee will announce their presidential bids this week following that of retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson. “The spotlight on all three new candidates, who languish in polls behind to the likes of former Gov. Jeb Bush of Florida and [Gov. Scott] Walker, will be diminished by the fact that their announcements are clumped together,” Rappeport writes. However, Huckabee’s particular popularity with evangelical Christians may peel votes away from those frontrunners.
