Mike Huckabee Wrapped-Up Another Book Tour and Another Comes in 2011
Governor Huckabee has just wrapped up another book tour. This time he was promoting his Christmas book A Simple Christmas from last year which has been updated and his new children’s book Can’t Wait Till Christmas which stems from one of the chapters in the adult version. This was a more low-key tour as about half the stops were made than he normally does when promoting a book. This time he visited the states of Arizona, California, Florida, and New Jersey. I believe these were all states he had not visited before on a book tour with the exception of Florida. He received an amazing response in these states in which many times hundreds of people were lined up to meet Huckabee and have their books signed.
While on the tour Gov. Huckabee also took the time to give some important lectures and speeches. One of these was in Orange County in Southern California where it seemed he was taking a Presidential campaign for a test drive, and the attendees were enthusiastic about his message. While going back to the east coast for his Fox News show and another book signing Huckabee stirred emotion at the 28th Beit El Dinner in New York where he received a standing ovation. While on the book tour trail Huckabee was very open to talking to the press which could be because he is a natural behind the camera and microphone and is confident in his message. There were two really good spontaneous interviews: one was conducted at the Reagan Library in California and the other one was with NewsMax while he was in Florida where he stated that he could take the White House in 2012.
Can’t Wait Till Christmas debuted at number ten on The New York Time’s Best Seller List last week and Huckabee has already announced that he will have a new policy book coming out at the end of February 2011. I have been made aware that this spring book tour will have a large amount of destinations and in states that could send a message. It will be interesting to see the footprints of Mike Huckabee in 2011 since he has remained so popular and continues to lead in polls not only for the GOP nomination in 2012 but also in head-to-head match-ups against President Obama. Maybe soon he will get some respect.
