ALEXANDRIA/PINEVILLE – The wife of presidential candidate Mike Huckabee visited Central Louisiana today, sharing her thoughts on the need for prayer, the condition of America and her husband’s bid for the highest elected office in the United States.
Janet Huckabee’s Wednesday morning began early as she did a radio interview at a local station, attended the prayer meeting at the Louisiana Baptist Building in Alexandria and ending her morning by talking to a group of students and pastors at Louisiana College in Pineville.
During her message at the Baptist Building, Huckabee said if everyone in the room had a chance to sit at the table with George Washington, Benjamin Franklin and Jesus Christ and discuss the state of the country, what would they say to them.
“Would you be able to say anything at all and would we be able to honestly say we are doing everything in our power to give our children and ,yes, our grandchildren back a better America then where we grew up,” said Huckabee, a native of Lake Charles. “I think I would probably say we might not be able to do that.”
Later, Huckabee shared the importance of having a team of 10 ladies praying for her on a daily basis. This team prays for such requests as an important speech, her husband as he travels on the campaign trail, an upcoming debate and spiritual attacks.
“I know these women will pray,” she said. “And to me that has to be one of the most comforting things in this whole race that we are doing.”
Huckabee has been in the state since Tuesday, when she made appearances in Denham Springs, Greenwell Springs and Lafayette.
Before leaving the state today, Huckabee planned to visit Calvary Baptist Church in Natchitoches at 2 pm and First Baptist Church in Bossier City at 5:30 pm.
Louisiana’s primary is March 5.
