Huckabee Slams 'Pathetic' Effort by GOP to Reach Out to Minority Voters

Mike Huckabee ripped the Republican Party for its “pathetic” efforts to reach out to voters of color during an election night appearance on Fox News.

“What do you make of the racial divide we are seeing in vote totals,” Megyn Kelly asked the former Arkansas governor.

“I think Republicans have done a pathetic job of reaching out to people of color, something we have to work on,” Huckabee responded. “It’s a group of people who should be, frankly, with us based on the real policy of conservatism.”

He added:”Republicans have acted like they can’t get the vote, so they don’t try. And the result is that they don’t get the vote.”
