Huckabee has a gig at Okoboji

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, the winner of the 2008 Iowa Republican Party's Caucuses, was in Iowa last July and again in November.  Now, there's word Huckabee will return for a turn at the Iowa Association of Business and Industry's annual convention.  Huckabee is scheduled to speak in the afternoon on Wednesday, June 10, 2009.

For those of you who watch television, '80s heart-throb Rick Springfield was a guest on Huckabee's show on FOX this past weekend and the two played Springfield's biggest hit:  "Jesse's Girl."  (That link takes you to an 8 minute video of Huckabee and Springfield chatting, then playing the song.)  On May 11, 2007, Huckabee talked about music with musicians from Iowa.  Huckabee argued musical instruments should be "weapons of mass instruction" in American schools.  As you may know, Huckabee has a band called "Capitol Offense" and he plays the bass guitar.  The band played the historic Surf Ballroom in the fall of 2007.
