(CNN) – Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee reiterated Saturday night that he will remain in the race for the Republican nomination until someone obtains the 1,191 delegates needed to become the GOP’s presidential nominee.
“People don’t want to be told who their president’s going to be,” Huckabee said when asked by CNN’s Wolf Blitzer to explain his win in the GOP’s caucuses in Kansas Saturday. “And, in the Republican Party, people want to make a choice. They don’t want somebody else making that decision for them,” he added.
“There’s something going on out there, it’s called an election,” Huckabee said. The GOP underdog also told Blitzer that competition is a core principle of the Republican Party.
