Huckabee overcomes Romney's 15-1 spending advantage
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney outspent Mike Huckabee by a 15-1 margin, but as Huckabee just told his supporters after soundly defeating Romney in the Iowa caucuses, "People are more important than the purse."
With actor Chuck Norris, whose Huckabee ad first garnered major attention for the former Arkansas governor, standing on the left, and Mrs. Huckabee, on his right, Huckabee expanded upon his vision for America.
"The greatest generation doesn't have to be the one behind us," Huckabee said. "It can be the ones who haven't yet been born."
"It started here in Iowa, but it doesn't end here," Huckabee said, noting that the battle will continue across the country and "end at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue one year from now."
