Former Arkansas Gov. Huckabee applauded Newt Gingrich, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum and Rick Perry for speaking at the premiere of the film “The Gift of Life” at Hoyt Sherman Place.
“It is significant that all four of these candidates here tonight have endorsed life,” Huckabee told the crowd of more than 1,000 people, who gave him a standing ovation.
Huckabee, who serves as a FOX News host, premiered the 60-minute documentary produced by Citizens United, and provided a forum for the candidates to discuss their stance on pro-life issues.
