Former presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee, was in Meridian Sunday night to promote his book, A Simple Christmas. Hundreds of people stood in a long line that stretched out the door of Books-A-Million and in front of several stores in the Meridian Crossroads Shopping Center.
While Huckabee was in town to promote his book, many in attendance wanted to hear about the former Arkansas governor's political plans. He addressed the issue with Newscenter 11.
"I tell them nothing has been closed out yet. We need to focus on what is ahead of us and that is 2010 and not 2012. If I could get this response all over the country, like I got in Meridian, it is pretty powerful," said Huckabee.
Huckabee signed books for about an hour and was sure to shake as many hands as possible as he loaded back on his bus.
