Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee visited Manchester on Tuesday afternoon. The former Arkansas governor spoke to a roomful of people at the Pizza Ranch. Huckabee is one of 17 Republicans in the race, and he told KMCH there are several reasons that he stands out among the rest.
And the crowd was anxious to hear what he had to say. One Independence woman who has ties to Israel says she appreciates what he stands for.
A man from Fulton, Illinois drove nearly two hours to Manchester so he could be part of Iowa’s political process.
While some of those in attendance Tuesday were already Huckabee supporters, others still had some deciding to do.
