'Huckabus' sets GPS for Florida




Mike Huckabee's Florida organizers are planning a bus tour for the last five days leading up to the Jan. 29 primary. The tour will take the Republican presidential candidate across the state. Exact details are to be worked out. Huckabee might also appear in between contests in other states.

"The governor is an early riser and an energetic guy. We'll be out there with him," said state Sen. Mike Haridopolos, co-chairman of the Florida campaign. "Florida is huge and what's so neat about this is he's got these meet up groups across the state. We want to meet as many as possible to get them even more motivated about the big day."

Also, check out this YouTube pitch from Haridopolos and House Speaker Marco Rubio, standing on a street corner in New Hampshire earlier this week. (Is that Rep. David Rivera juggling oranges in the background?)
