Huckabee endorses Mike Cox for Michigan governor


LIVONIA, MI – Republican gubernatorial candidate Mike Cox has picked up an endorsement from Mike Huckabee, the former Arkansas governor who ran for president in 2008.

In a statement released Wednesday by Cox's campaign, Huckabee describes the Michigan attorney general as a "pro-life, pro-gun candidate."

Huckabee says Cox is an innovative, strong leader who opposes "runaway tax and spend policies."

Huckabee was Arkansas governor from 1996-2007 and unsuccessfully sought the GOP presidential nomination two years ago.

Cox is running to succeed Democratic Gov. Jennifer Granholm, who cannot seek re-election because of term limits.
