Huckabee, 65, is an American politician, Baptist minister, political commentator, and bassist. He was a candidate for the Republican Party presidential nomination in both 2008 and 2016.

He was the host of the talk show Huckabee, which ran on the Fox News Channel from 2008 to 2015, and aired on TBN since October 2017. He paused the show in January 2015 in order to explore a potential bid for the presidency. From April 2012 through December 2013, he hosted a daily radio program, The Mike Huckabee Show, on weekday afternoons for Cumulus Media Networks. Huckabee is the author of several best-selling books, an ordained Southern Baptist minister noted for his evangelical views, a musician, and a public speaker. He was also a political commentator on The Huckabee Report.

In the 2008 Republican presidential primaries, Huckabee won the 2008 Iowa Republican caucuses and finished second in delegate count and third in both popular vote and number of states won, behind John McCain and Mitt Romney. Huckabee ran again for the Republican nomination in the 2016 presidential election, but withdrew early in the primary following a disappointing finish in the Iowa caucus.

Huckabee is the father of former White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, who is currently running for Governor of Arkansas.
