Huckabee and Santorum

Join Trump’s Special Event

trump special event for veteransPresidential candidates Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum will not be attending the Fox News main Republican televised debate tonight.

Instead they will be going to Donald Trump’s alternative event to help veterans’ organisations.

Spokesmen for both candidates confirmed that they will still participate in tonight’s undercard GOP debate, but will head to the Trump event after.

The undercard debate begins at 7 p.m. Eastern, two hours before Trump’s event is scheduled to start three miles away. That gives candidates who failed to reach the main stage the freedom to participate, while anyone slated for the main stage would have to skip the debate altogether to attend.

huckabee and santorumHuckabee said that he didn’t speak with Trump directly about the plans, but that his staff had expressed interest in conversation with the Trump campaign. He added that he does not believe the decision to join Trump at the event sends a negative message to those candidates taking part in the main-stage debate.

“It’s to honor the troops, it’s not an endorsement of Donald Trump’s candidacy. I’m still running for president, we’ve got the caucuses Monday night, but I’m delighted to join with Donald Trump in an effort to salute the veterans,” Huckabee said today on CNN’s “Wolf.”

“I’m not invited to the main stage, I would have loved to have been on that stage … if they aren’t sitting out in the audience watching me, I don’t feel any compulsion that I have to be there for that debate.”

 

Endorsement For Trump?

Both Huckabee and Santorum are likely to drop out of the presidential race after the Iowa Caucus.

Trump stands by debate boycottSo the big question is, is this move a sign that one or both candidates may be leaning towards endorsing Trump?

Neither has attacked Trump like the others have tried to do, and both stand with Trump on a number of key policy issues, from a tough foreign policy to a restoration of tariffs and wages in America.

An endorsement from both sometime next week might not be out of the question.

It’s beginning to get very interesting.
