Henry Bayard, the Broward volunteer coordinator for Mike Huckabee and former president of the Davie-Cooper City Republican Club, said he believes Huckabee will draw support beyond the conservative Christian bloc that likes the former Baptist minister. "He's got broad appeal. It's not just evangelicals," Bayard said. "I think he has a broad base of support down here and I think he's going to shock a lot of people when it comes to Florida.”

Giuliani, Huckabee battle in Florida

Huckabee has been closing in on Giuliani in Florida.
The Baptist minister has been gaining support from evangelical Christians concerned that Giuliani would be liberal on social issues, such as abortion, and uneasy about Romney's Mormon faith. Huckabee, who raised close to $400,000 after two days of fundraising in Florida, was in Orlando on Thursday after a fundraiser Monday in Miami.
Huckabee supporter Patsy Carpenter of Satellite Beach arrived at the Orlando Executive Airport send-off in a Honda with the message ''Faith, family, freedom'' inscribed neatly across the back windshield just above the candidate's e-mail address.
Carpenter, a retired first-grade teacher, married mother of two and grandmother of three, said she had never donated to a candidate before she made a small contribution to Huckabee.

The tour of the state comes as the former Arkansas governor's poll numbers are rising, with some polls showing him in first place or tied for first among the crowded GOP field that includes Rudy Giuliani, Mitt Romney and Fred Thompson.
"If we had as much money, as many consultants, as many employees, as many headquarters, as many focus groups, as many TV ads as some of these other guys, we would be as far behind them as they are behind us," Huckabee chided.
