Chuck Norris campaigns in New Hampshire with Mike Huckabee.
BERLIN, New Hampshire (CNN) –A snowy morning with bone chilling temperatures did not deter fans from seeing martial arts action hero, Chuck Norris' campaign debut in the Granite state, Saturday, with presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee.
In New Hampshire's North Country, supporters greeted the former Arkansas governor and Chuck Norris to rousing cheers of "Huck and Chuck!"
"I'm smart enough to know that most of you guys didn't come out on a Saturday morning to see Mike Huckabee," the presidential hopeful told the large crowd. "I know it helped a whole lot to bring one of America's living legends."
Norris, the cult hero of "Texas Walker Ranger," discussed how he had been dissatisfied with the Republican field of candidates and credited his online fans for introducing him to Huckabee.
"I started getting all these emails saying that we [fans] are backing Mike Huckabee for President," said Norris who endorsed Huckabee in late October after meeting with him at his Texas ranch. Since then, Norris has starred in a Huckabee television ad and accompanied the presidential candidate at CNN's You Tube Debate in Florida. The last candidate Norris actively endorsed was former President George H.W. Bush in 1988.
Later, while discussing the rising attacks on him from the republican presidential field, Huckabee joked that, with Chuck Norris on his team, he was prepared to fight.
"My opponents have taken out all the sharp knives in the kitchen right now and I'm sure they will get them all ready to slice and dice - and thank goodness for Chuck Norris. "
