Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee is leading in South Carolina bid for 2012 GOP nod. Problem is Huckabee may be very happy with his current gig at Fox News. Huckabee says he will not make a decision until later on this summer. South Carolina holds its “First in the South” debate the first week of May in Greenville. Huckabee came in second in 2008 South Carolina primary losing to John McCain by 14,743 votes.
