Huckabee launched a Christmas ad Monday.
WASHINGTON (CNN) - If there’s anything more ubiquitous than Christmas commercials this time of year, it’s political ads. A new Mike Huckabee spot falls under both categories.
“Are you about worn out of all the television commercials you’ve been seeing, mostly about politics? I don’t blame you,” says the former Baptist minister, sitting in front of an elaborately-trimmed Christmas tree as ‘Silent Night’ plays softly in the background.
“At this time of year, sometimes it’s nice to just pull aside from all that, and remember that what really matters is the celebration of the birth of Christ..... I hope you and your family will have a magnificent Christmas season. And on behalf of all of us, God bless, and Merry Christmas.”
The campaign says the spots will run in Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina.
