Mike Huckabee Pushes Republican Senators to Resign or Quit White House Run (VIDEO)
Former Governor Mike Huckabee pushed Republican opponents to resign or quit their Senate job today on Good Morning America.
“Do you get paid for not showing up for work?… Resign the job you have.”
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s opponents in the race for the White House who are senators should either resign or drop out of the contest, he said on ABC’s Good Morning America Wednesday.
“If a person has a job that the taxpayers are paying for, shouldn’t that person do that job?” Huckabee, a Republican who said Tuesday he was running for president, told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on GMA.
Three of his opponents in the Republican presidential field are U.S. senators: Sens. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. Asked whether he thought his opponents should resign, he called it a clear choice.
“I just believe it’s a matter of integrity to say, ‘I don’t want this job that I just got elected to, I think I want another job,’” he said. “OK, then resign the job you want, or the job you have, and go out there and seek the one you want.”
