Huckabee To Announce Presidential Intentions On Saturday Night

Will he? Won’t he?

Nobody knows until tomorrow night.

And he’s doing it on Fox News:

Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee is expected to announce whether or not he will run for president on his Fox News Channel show Saturday evening, a major moment in the nascent 2012 contest.

“Governor Huckabee will announce tomorrow night on his program whether or not he intends to explore a presidential bid,” said Woody Fraser, the executive producer of “Huckabee” in a statement. “He has not told anyone at Fox News Channel his decision.”

While Huckabee’s Saturday show is always taped, his announcement about 2012 will run live, according to an informed source.

And yet one of his aides hasn’t heard he’s running, so he doesn’t think the answer will be “It’s on.”

From WSJ:

Mr. Huckabee has told followers to tune in to his Saturday evening show on Fox News for what he calls a major announcement. But Ed Rollins, who directed his 2008 campaign and has been organizing his 2012 campaign-in-waiting, said he has not been consulted.

“I’ve heard nothing, which indicates to me he’s not running,” Mr. Rollins said in an interview.

To me, that sounds pretty definitive. If Hucakbee hasn’t let his campaign manager for 2012 know his intentions, would he really spring it on everybody on national television?

More as it develops…
