Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst picked up an ultra-conservative endorsement for his Senate bid, today. Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee announced he and his political action committee would support the Lieutenant Governor.

In an email statement, Huckabee said:

"Not only is he a fiscal conservative, but he shares are social values as well and will continue to fight for our shared values in Washington. Lt. Governor Dewhurst has worked on passing legislation to protect the sanctity of life and define marriage as a union between one man and one woman. He also strongly believes in our 2nd amendment rights."

Huckabee is a former presidential candidate and currently hosts a show on Fox News. He formed a political action committee, HuckPAC, in 2008. The PAC is dedicated to getting support for Republicans running for the U.S. House and Senate.
