Mitt Romney Watch: New Romney TV Ad Goes Negative on Huckabee Foreign Policy; Update: Huckabee Calls Romney “Dishonest”Posted by Flap in Mike Huckabee, Mitt Romney, President 2008
Romney for President Campaign Ad: Ready
Mitt Romney is going negative on McCain in New Hampshire and negative on Mike Huckabee in Iowa. It helps to have a large checkbook.
How will Team Huckabee respond?
Governor Huckabee took an indirect shot at his rival Mitt Romney, who has been shelling both Huckabee and John McCain with negative ads, or as the Romney campaign calls them â€ contrastâ€ ads, on both flanks. Huckabee said was asked if he planned on going â€œnegativeâ€ to counter these ads against him. Huckabee said he didnâ€™t plan on going negative, but wanted to show that a â€œpositive campaign worksâ€.
However, Huck then then dropped the hammer with this phrase:
â€ If you are dishonest in getting the job, then youâ€™ll be dishonest in carrying the job. I think thatâ€™s what is at risk here,â€he said, alluding to Romney,but never specifically naming him.
Mike Huckabee responds to Romney attacks with a generic ANTI- Anti-attack ad (now on air in Iowa):
