Awkward: Mike Huckabee Never Told His Campaign Staff That He Wasn’t Running

Ed Rollins is Mike Huckabee‘s 2008 national campaign chairman and was also supposedly in charge of setting up a potential 2012 run for the former Arkansas Governor, so one would think that he’d have known that Huckabee had decided not to throw his hat into the ring this year. Unfortunately for Rollins, that doesn’t seem to be the case.

Rollins called in to Fox News Radio’s Kilmeade and Friends to share that he’s yet to receive a courtesy call from Huckabee regarding his decision not to run this year. Awkward!

Rollins told host Brian Kilmeade that he’s disappointed in the way Huckabee handled his announcement, calling Huckabee’s announcement on his Fox News show “too commercial” and sharing that the former Governor never thought to reach out to those who worked hard on the “externals” of his campaign in order to let them know, one-on-one, of his decision.
