Huckabee responds to the indictment of former NYC police commissioner Bernard Kerik .
DURHAM, New Hampshire (CNN) – While many in the Republican race see the indictment of former New York City police commissioner Bernard Kerik as an opportunity to pounce on national Republican frontrunner, Rudy Giuliani, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee is steering clear from the debate.
"I don't think it's fair to ascribe to a candidate something that someone he knows did," Huckabee told reporters Saturday after his five kilometer race at the University of New Hampshire.
"I know the easy thing for me to do would be to pounce on him and say 'oh yeah,' but you know what if I'm going to hold everybody accountable for something their friends did, none of us would be standing when it's over."
