Governor Mike Huckabee is focused on a very big goal these days, reforming public education in Arkansas - not running for U.S. Senate. The Governor made that announcement at the mansion with his wife by his side. He said he didn`t think it was fair for the people of Arkansas to be wondering if he was lying awake nights contemplating a senate run. According to Huckabee, focusing on his current job is job one. He feels lawmakers working on school reform plans have been distracted by the uncertainty of his political future. He wanted to take that uncertainty off the table. The Supreme Court has given the state a January deadline for creating an adequate and equal education system. The special legislative session slated to handle those issues won`t convene until December. As for the question of who might fill the candidate shoes Huckabee now plans to leave open? Lieutenant Governor Winthrop Rockefeller and former Congressman Asa Hutchinson say they won`t be challenging incumbent Blanche Lincoln. State Republican party chairman Marty Ryall some others have expressed interest, but that happened during private talks he`s not yet ready to make public.
