The Exciting Huckabee Encounter - Part 3

After our time in the Capitol, we returned to the Legislative Building to await Gov. Huckabee's arrival. A big crowd of media, legislators, interns and supporters began to gather.
While we waited, Fox News17 interviewed Daddy.

Gov. Huckabee arrived, and waved to us, then was hurried into the Lt. Gov.'s office for a press conference. After the press conference, Gov. Huckabee met with Tennessee leaders in the office. He planned to come out and talk to the crowd afterwards.

We waited and waited and waited...
While we were waiting, Daddy was interviewed by the Arkansas Democratic Gazette and by another news channel. Melissa was interviewed by ITV, making 5 interviews in all for our family.

Still waiting...our signs and buttons being taped by the media...
After 2 hours...
Gov. Huckabee finally emerges!
Because the meetings had taken so long, all Gov. Huckabee had time to do was shake hands on the way out.

David asked Gov. Huckabee if he had a message for the readers of our blog. Gov. Huckabee did, and Sarah videotaped it. When we figure out how to put it on the computer, we'll post it!
One man gave his cell phone to Gov. Huckabee so he could talk to his wife!
Gov. Huckabee is hurried away to his next event.
Our autographed books, signs and bumper stickers!
