WASHINGTON, Feb 9 (Reuters) – Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee won the Republican presidential contest in Kansas on Saturday, Fox News Channel projected, showing signs of life in a nominating race front-runner John McCain has nearly sewed up.
The win for Huckabee followed a strong showing in the South earlier in the week, when the Baptist minister won four Southern states and West Virginia in “Super Tuesday” voting involving nearly half of U.S. states.
Huckabee vowed earlier in the day, during an appearance at a conference of conservative activists, to continue his shoestring campaign that has appealed to social and religious conservatives.
“Am I quitting? Let’s get that settled right now. No, I’m not,” Huckabee said at the conference.
