When Governor Mike Huckabee ended his show on the Fox News Channel on January 3rd, the Duggars were thrilled to hear that he is seriously considering running for president in 2016.
The Duggars met Mike Huckabee while Jim Bob was serving in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 1999 to 2002. Jim Bob and Michelle were interviewed on Huckabee's show in 2013.
Not only do the Duggars support Huckabee, but Huckabee supports the Duggars.
"I've pointed them out as an example of something that's wholesome and wonderful, and I've known them since Jim Bob was in the legislature when I was governor," Huckabee told PEOPLE.
The Duggars eagerly await Huckabee's announcement, which will be made sometime this spring, on whether he will run in the next presidential election.
Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their children campaigned for Huckabee during the 2008 presidential election. "Should I run, I'm hoping they'll do it again," Huckabee told PEOPLE. "And now there's more of 'em!"
"If I can get 'em registered in each of the states, I'm going to win just by virtue of their votes!" joked Huckabee.
