Some Jewish leaders are scratching their heads — and Jewish Democrats are gloating — over the latest religious pronouncement from former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, the ordained Baptist minister who has skyrocketed to the top tier in the race for the 2008 Republican presidential nomination.
Speaking Monday at a campaign rally in Warren, Mich., Huckabee said he wants to change the Constitution to be consistent with God’s word.
A top Jewish supporter of Mike Huckabee’s presidential campaign said he came to admire the former Arkansas governor during a recent Marine Corps Marathon in Washington.
Dr. Jeffrey Ross, a Houston podiatrist and running enthusiast, said the event gave him a strong insight into the candidate’s character.
Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee’s surprising second-place finish in last week’s Iowa GOP straw poll may be the answer to Christian conservatives’ prayers or just the latest media sensation in an overly long 2008 presidential race.
But several experts agree on one thing: it could be bad news for Jewish Republicans.
