Firstly, Huckabee graduated from Ouachita Baptist University with a BA in 1975. He then studied at the South-Western Baptist Seminary, although he dropped out of it after one year. Then Huckabee worked as a pastor in the Southern Baptist Convention. From 1989 to 1991, Huckabee was a president of the Baptist Convention of the State of Arkansas, until in 1993, Huckabee became lieutenant governor (vice-governor) elected in Arkansas. He thus was one of the few Republicans to have held high position in Arkansas. The accessible and popular Huckabee was re-elected in 1994 as lieutenant governor, then elected as governor of Arkansas, being sworn in on July 15 1996.

Immediately after taking office he signed a law which provided medical care for children of families who could not pay inoculaione insurance, and consequently earned the trust of the masses. During his first term as governor Huckabee campaigned for the improvement of the infrastructure, then in 2000 Huckabee was re-elected. On the 28th January, 2007 he announced his participation in the USA presidential election of 2008, but even though he appeared to be very popular, Huckabee finished third in the popular vote. After the campaign, Huckabee wrote a book entitled “Do The Right Thing: Inside the Movement That’s Bringing Common Sense Back to America”. This book became a best-seller which undoubtedly added sums to the total size of Mike Huckabee net worth and popularity.

He also then signed a contract with Fox News, where he had his own program entitled “Huckabee” (2008 – 2015). More, on the ABC Radio Network, Huckabee also had his own review section “The Mike Huckabee Show” (2012 – 2013). In the run-up to the presidential elections in 2012, there was plenty of speculation about the possible participation of Huckabee, as in various polls he scored high positions, but in May 2011 he announced that he would not stand as a candidate. In a statement he said, “all the factors say ‘go’ but my heart says no”.

Subsequently, on the 5th May 2015, Huckabee made himself known as a candidate for the presidential elections of 2016. To give a brief note about Huchabee’s view towards social politics: the candidate is against abortion, same – sex marriage, embryonic stem cell research, and supports the death penalty. In foreign policy he supported the war in Iraq.

Finally, in the personal life of the politician, he married Janet in 1974 – the family has three children. They reside in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida, USA.
