Mitt Romney is scheduled to sit down for an interview with a 2008 rival for the Republican presidential nomination, Mike Huckabee, this weekend, The Caucus has learned.
Could an important endorsement be in the works?
Mr. Huckabee will tape the interview with Mr. Romney on Friday, and it will be broadcast on his Fox News show, which airs on Saturday and Sunday evenings at 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. Promos for the interview are set to broadcast Thursday afternoon on the network.
If you need any more proof that this election cycle is VASTLY different than the last, I suggest you quit paying attention. As recently as a few months ago Huckabee was not disguising his continuing distaste for Romney, although in the last few weeks Huckabee has begun to thaw a little.
A Huckabee endorsement of Romney is too much to imagine. A simple thawing of relations is extraordinary enough in and of itself. One would tend to suspect an ambush, frankly, but I have to believe Romney’s bookers are smarter than that.
One thing is for certain, I will watch Huckabee for the first time ever this weekend – well, at least the segments with Romney.
