Culture of Corruption, Both Parties
Presidential contender Mike Huckabee says his party took a beating in the 2006 election because too many of its candidates didn't act like Republicans.
"We didn't fight corruption like we should, we didn't curtail spending, we didn't resolve problems," the former Arkansas governor told reporters Friday before a speech to the Midwest Leadership Conference.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney touted his views on health care in a dinner speech Friday night, continuing a theme he had begun earlier in the day while campaigning in Florida.
Except for actor and former Sen. Fred Thompson, who was scheduled as the keynote speaker Saturday night, others in the crowded GOP field were skipping the event.
