Huckabee took on Romney's spending habits Sunday.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee took on fellow Republican candidate Mitt Romney's spending habits Sunday on CNN's Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer. The former Arkansas governor said: "I would be worried if I were a voter if a person is spending millions and millions of dollars to barely be in double digits. I'd be beginning to think I don't want that person in charge of the Federal Treasury."
Huckabee was responding to comments Romney gave Friday in an interview with the Associated Press: "If Huckabee raises $20 million this quarter, like we did in the first quarter, then he'll become a front-tier candidate."
Huckabee doesn't think that degree of funding is necessary. He told Wolf Blitzer, "I appreciate his budget advice but we're not spending money like he is. We don't have to raise it, and we're getting where we're going by being frugal just like I would want to be with the Federal Treasury."
