On Tuesday, Mike Huckabee announced he would be joining the growing list of potential presidential nominees - eliciting a level of disappointment that Glenn had previously reserved only for Jeb Bush. Glenn doesn’t think Huck has a shot, so why is he entering the race?
Glenn laid out his theory on what’s going on in the smoke-filled rooms of the establishment GOP.
"I think he's being put in as a spoiler. I think that's the only thing. I really do. I think he's there because he'll pull religious votes away from Ted Cruz. And that's the one that big government progressives are afraid of. The establishment is afraid of Ted Cruz and Rand Paul. They're going to do everything they can to make sure those two are nowhere to be seen when it comes to Election Day. And so if you want to take care of Ted Cruz, you go after the religious base. And you split the religious base. And that's what Mike Huckabee is doing," Glenn said.
