LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (CNN) - Mike Huckabee put a 30-second television ad in rotation Houston and Dallas on Wednesday ahead of Texas’ March 4th primary.
Titled “Stand Up,” Huckabee credits Texas for its reputation of going against the grain. “Being independent is being Texas. Not going along just to 'get along.' It means standing for something so you don’t fall for just anything.”
Huckabee is counting on Texans’ supposed independence to close the sizeable gap in the polls between him and John McCain.
At his rallies, Huckabee lists the issues that separate him from John McCain and does so again in the ad, “I'm the only candidate supporting the Human Life Amendment, stopping illegal immigration with a real border security plan, and the Fair Tax.”
“It's time to stand up and be counted—not lie down and be conquered.”
