Huckabee not running for President in 2012

WATERLOO (KWWL) -

The list of Republican presidential candidates is a little shorter.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee ended speculation about a presidential run in 2012 announcing on his Fox news program Saturday he is not running for president again.

He was the winner of the 2008 Iowa caucuses and recent polls showed he was at or near the top of the field of Republican candidates.

So far, former house speaker Newt Gingrich and Texas Representative Dr. Ron Paul have declared a run for the White House. Paul made the announcement Friday.  This is his third attempt at the presidency.

Gingrich made his announcement Wednesday. He's already visited Iowa several times this year and will be in Iowa again this week.
