McCain compliments Huckabee.
CONCORD, New Hampshire (CNN) - Aboard his 'Straight-Talk' express, CNN asked Sen. John McCain, R-Arizona, if he would consider former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee as his running mate.
McCain didn't comment on a potential vice presidential pick, but praised the former Arkansas governor.
"I think Gov. Huckabee is a fine man," McCain said. "I've had the opportunity to get know Hucakabee during this campaign. We have differences on several issues but I tell you, I think he’s the real deal. I really do," he said.
He then added, "And I think he has performed well in this campaign."
