Mike Huckabee Plays Evangelical Card- Admits To Raising Taxes

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee played the Evangelical card today.
The Washington Post reported:

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee touted his candidacy Saturday as a chance for evangelical Christians to lead the Republican Party rather than just support its candidates.

“I don’t presume that you automatically support me because of a common faith,” Huckabee told a group of more than 100 conservative pastors. “I know I have to earn that. But I also recognize that there is a unique kind of opportunity. For a long time, those of us who are people of faith are asked to support candidates who would come and talk to us. But rarely has there been one who comes from us.”

Mark Levin called this tactic “deplorable campaigning.”
Governor Huckabee also admitted to raising taxes while governor on Face the Nation this morning:

This may not play out well with conservatives.
