Huckabee Picks Up Minuteman Founder Endorsement
Added 2286 days ago in
Mike Huckabee, under fire for some of his immigration stands while governor of Arkansas, picked up an endorsement in Council Bluffs, Iowa, from the ultimate illegal immigration opponent: Jim Gilchrist, founder of the Minuteman Project, the group that has roamed the border for the last several years operating effectively as an independent border patrol.
President Bush called the group "vigilantes" two years ago. But Huckabee seemed eager to announce the endorsement, as it came on a day when former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney started running an ad that slams Huckabee for backing a provision that would have allowed the children of illegal immigrants to receive in-state tuition in Arkansas.
"Frankly, Jim I've got to tell you there were times in the early days of the Minutemen I thought what are these guys doing, what are they about," Huckabee said. "I confess I owe you an apology." He said of Gilchrist, "nobody can question his commitment to his country."

Is the endorsement of Jim Gilchrist founder of Minuteman Project worth while flaunting?
Yes, Republicans by large are anti-illegal immigration
No, The Minute Man is a group considered by many as "vigilantes"
This is not a scientific survey,
to learn more. Results may not total 100% due to rounding and voting descrepencies.

Not sure this endorsement adds much value, especially when the down side is far greater. Who wants to be associated with a thug, even if he's potentially doing what is right.

Within the Republican Party it's probably a good endorsement. Not too sure about Gilchrist's background as a vigilantes. The Republican Candidates are competing who can be more effective at passing legislation to stop any kind of illegal immigration.

Most important issue for the Republican constituents, so any endorsement would be valuable.
