It’s pretty rare that I get wind of breaking news before other people do. However, twenty-seven Missouri politicians are about to announce their support of Mike Huckabee.

While there has been a lot of questions about whether he would be able to translate his momentum into victories in the caucuses, this sort of endorsement will give him an enormous boost in a state in which he has recently started to lead.

This is from the press release:

“Governor Huckabee represents the true conservative principals that many Missouri Republicans value,” Missouri State Senator and Chair of Huckabee’s Missouri organization Delbert Scott said. “When we met with the Governor last week, his sincerity really stood out.”

Twenty-three state representatives and four state senators are publicly supporting Huckabee. “Governor Huckabee’s recent surge in Iowa, South Carolina, and Florida has been reflected here in Missouri,” Missouri State Representative Brian Yates said. “In the past two weeks, we have added many new endorsements from all areas of the state.”

Here are the names of those endorsing him:
