Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee (R), a candidate for the presidency of the United States, has made a written pledge to the American people to “oppose and veto any and all efforts to raise taxes.”
“Governor Huckabee has pledged in writing to the American people that he will oppose and veto any and all tax increases,” said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform. “His public commitment makes it clear that he will fight to reform government to cost less rather than paper over and continue past failures with higher taxes.”
Governor Huckabee also ruled out tax hikes as a candidate for President in 2008. Among declared 2016 GOP presidential candidates, Huckabee joins Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Carly Fiorina in pledging to oppose any and all tax increases.
In 2012, all candidates for the Republican nomination for president pledged to oppose tax hikes with the lone exception of former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman. Huntsman finished seventh in Iowa and third in New Hampshire before dropping out of the race.
