WBOC Talks with Fmr. Gov. Mike Huckabee

Posted:

GEORGETOWN, DE - Former Arkansas Governor and former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee spent Friday night in Delaware. He was the keynote speaker at the annual scholarship banquet for Delmarva Christian High School in Georgetown.

One of the highlights of the night for attendees was Huckabee joining a band of teenage musicians from the school on the bass.

"Music is a great common denominator," he said. "It's an equalizer. It brings people together. In a world where so many things divide people generationally or politically music brings people together."

One things that's divided people politically this week is a major move by the US Supreme Court that appears to mean same-sex marriage will soon be legal in a total of 30 states. Earlier this week Huckabee expressed concern Republicans were throwing up the white flag on the issue.

"Here's what struck me - there were immediately a number of Republican politicians who said, 'Well, that's it. That's the end of it.' No, it is not the end of it. The courts have said this is what should happen. But it isn't operative until the legislature and executive branches agree."

Huckabee's home state of Arkansas is in the middle of a tight race for a US Senate seat. There are many more like it across the country. They are races that could give republicans a majority in the Senate.

"I think the Senate is going to go Republican. I believe a lot of the reason is that people are so unhappy with a government that has just rammed things down their throats," said Huckabee.

While Maryland doesn't have a Senate race this year and voters in both Delaware and Virginia look to be heavily favoring the Democratic Senate candidate, nationally Real Clear Politics says nine races are basically toss ups, including the race in Arkansas.

The fate of the Senate rests in the outcome of those electoral battles to be settled Nov. 4.

Huckabee also weighed in on the government's response to Ebola. He doesn't think the country was prepared and believes some of the government's actions have been light-handed. Huckabee says he thinks people have good reason to be concerned about the disease.
