John Deeth Blog: Huckabee Gets First Legislative Endorsements But Romney Leads

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee picked up his first three Iowa
legislative endorsements yesterday. But Mitt Romney, who leads in
most polls of Iowa Republicans, also has a commanding lead in
legislative endorsements. Sixteen of the state's 63 Republican
legislators, including House Minority Leader Christopher Rants, are
backing Romney. That's double the number of his nearest rival, Sen.
John McCain of Arizona. And as McCain's support has slipped, he's
also suffered some defections from former supporters. A year ago this
month, McCain's Straight Talk America PAC announced a 13 member "Iowa
Legislative Advisory Team." The day after that announcement, one
member, Rep. Dave Heaton of Mt. Pleasant, announced that he had not
made an endorsement and did not plan to.
