Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee has urged American Christians to involve themselves in the political process, and believes that without believers voting, the US is set for an ‘irreversible delcine.’
“I could not be more thrilled to accept this role as the new honorary national chairman of My Faith Votes. For nearly 40 years, as a pastor, governor and presidential candidate, I’ve never been more convinced of this: Christians will determine every election in America if they just show up,” Huckabee said in a press release Thursday.
“We’ve reached a tipping point in America’s history, and we’ll either emerge from it stronger and better than ever before or we’ll slide into an irreversible decline. It’s time for people of faith to step up to the plate and lead our nation.”
Huckabee is replacing Dr. Ben Carson, another former Republican presidential candidate, as the new honorary national chairman.
