Huckabee to Perform at Santorum Straw Poll Festivities

Former GOP Presidential Hopeful to Jam with The Crickets

Former Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA) announced this morning that former Arkansas Governor and former Republican Presidential Hopeful Mike Huckabee would be performing alongside Buddy Holly’s famed band, “The Crickets,” this Saturday, August 13th at the Ames Straw Poll.

“I am thrilled Governor Huckabee will be joining us this Saturday for our family friendly party to celebrate freedom and Iowa traditions,” said Senator Santorum.  “If there is anyone who understands traditional family values and Iowa’s great political heritage, it is Governor Huckabee.  I know how much our supporters will enjoy visiting with him and dancing along to his well-known bass playing.”

Governor Huckabee is slated to take the stage at 11:30 am – and will play the classic hits “Peggy Sue” and “That’ll Be the Day.”

Huckabee plans to make the rounds on Saturday.  He posted the following on his Facebook page yesterday.

“I have planned to broadcast my Fox News Show from Ames, Iowa this Saturday and while I’m there will play my bass guitar with numerous Republican campaigns interested in joining me, currently; Cain, McCotter, Pawlenty, and Santorum. The fact that I’ve agreed to play my guitar with a specific candidate does not mean that I’m endorsing that candidate. I have been consistent in saying I will not endorse a Republican candidate for President until after the primary process concludes.”
