Former Arkansas governor and 2008 presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee spent part of his Friday afternoon touting the campaign of New Hanover County Commission Chairman and District 7 congressional candidate Woody White.

Huckabee and White held a press conference at the Air Wilmington hangar on Friday, April 25, and Huckabee said White would be an ideal choice for District 7, which covers nine counties in southeastern North Carolina.

“I truly believe that Woody is the kind of person that, when he gets to Washington, he is not going to forget where he came from,” Huckabee said. “He is not going to forget who he is, he better not forget to come back home and he will be rooted and grounded — not in the Washington way but in the North Carolina way.”

Huckabee would not comment on why he thinks White is better suited for the position than his opponent, Republican candidate David Rouser.

“I don’t know his competitor so there is nothing unkind for me to say about the other gentleman who is running,” he said.

Huckabee said he did know White’s humility and strong conservative foundation would serve him well in Washington.

“Woody has a temperate and moderate spirit but a strong, un-moderate conviction about his conservative beliefs,” Huckabee said. “That is refreshing for somebody to have the deepest, absolutely rock solid conservative credentials but not be a person that comes across with anger and a combative spirit.”
