Huckabee praises ouster of Iowa judges, says president must take on courts (IowaIndependent)
The judicial retention election that resulted in three Iowa Supreme Court justices being removed from the bench was one of the most important elections in the entire country, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said during an interview with Christian radio host Steve Deace. Huckabee went on to say that when courts get out of line, the president and Congress must step up to put them back in place.
Huckabee, who said he is seriously considering another run for president in 2012 but won’t decide officially until well into next year, will be in Iowa on Sunday addressing The Family Leader, a new incarnation of the Iowa Family Policy Center that is led by former Huckabee adviser Bob Vander Plaats.
Asked about the judicial retention election, which saw Vander Plaats lead the successful campaign to oust the judges, Huckabee said Iowans spoke loudly.
“ It was not because the judges didn’t campaign — people can come up with any excuse they want. It was because people are sick of one branch of government thinking it is more powerful than the other two put together,” Huckabee said.
