Orlando and Miami will be the locations for Mike Huckabee's first two campaign offices in Florida. Here is the report from the St. Pete Times Blog:
Mike Huckabee is getting some Florida digs.
The heretofore cash-starved Republican will open a statewide office in downtown Orlando and one in Miami, according to two of his top supporters, Sen. Dan Webster and Rep. David Rivera.
The Orlando office has not been selected but will house a state coordinator and marshal a swelling volunteer force. Rivera said the Miami shop, at 8th Street and 57th Avenue, is "picked out, cleaned out, ready to go."
They dismissed talk that Huckabee cannot harness his sudden popularity because of little organization in key states. "Think of where he's gotten without infrastructure," Webster said. "Some people do top down; he's done bottom up. And it's really the best way to do a campaign -- it's just nobody believed you could do it in a presidential race. He's going to have the people, he's going to have the staff and he's going to get the money."
