Huckabee to campaign for Vander Plaats


CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- A Republican presidential candidate is planning to return to Iowa for a fresh round of campaigning.  

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is visiting the Hawkeye State to round up support for Bob Vander Plaats.  Vander Plaats is running as a GOP candidate for governor.

Huckabee won Iowa's precinct caucuses in 2008.  Vander Plaats worked as chairman of that successful caucus campaign.

Huckabee will speak at a private luncheon at the Cedar Rapids Country Club on February 24.   Tickets run $1,500 per person, and $2,500 per couple.  He'll also attend a free public rally at a local hotel.

Huckabee was the keynote speaker last summer at two events for Vander Plaats in Spirit Lake.
