5 faith facts about Mike Huckabee, Southern Baptist pastor-turned-politician Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee

WASHINGTON — Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is no stranger to the pulpit — or politics. The former Fox News Channel host announced Tuesday (May 5) his bid for the GOP nomination for the White House. Here are five facts about this Southern Baptist’s perspectives on faith.
1. Before he was a politician, he was a pastor.
Huckabee was a pastor who preached for 12 years in Arkansas pulpits before he became a governor and, later, a 2008 candidate for president. While he was governor (1996-2007), he maintained his pastoral instincts, sometimes contacting members of his Southern Baptist church when he learned of a death in their families.
