November

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee reminisced about how he took on the Clinton machine in Arkansas and talked about the economy and immigration during the Republican Party of Florida Sunshine Summit in Orlando Friday. Here are some excerpts:

HILLARY CLINTON: “I don’t know of anybody that is better prepared to take on battle with Hillary than me because no one ever faced the Clinton machine like I did because every election I was ever involved in was against the Bill and Hillary Clinton apparatus.”

ECONOMY: “Yes we have to fix our economy. I’m the one candidate who believes tinkering with the current tax code is an inaccurate approach. ... The bottom 90% of American workers their wages have been stagnant for the last 40 years.”

IMMIGRATION: “Every Republican says we will secure the border. But we always say that and never seem to do it. .... As president I will put the Director of Homeland Security and his family in Laredo Texas and say you are not leaving until you secure the border.”

LAUGH LINE: “I know when I die and go to heaven I’m going to stop in Atlanta on the way.” (The line was part of his anecdote about getting stuck in an airport.)
