From NBC's Chuck Todd
NBC News has learned that former GOP presidential candidate Mike Huckabee
is sponsoring robo-calls in Iowa gauging interest on whether it's worth putting together a paid campaign to fight the nomination of Judge Sonya Sotomayor to the Supreme Court. According to a person who took the recorded survey over the phone, it is from Huckabee, asks if the person on the phone is pro-life or pro-choice, whether they condemn abortion rights and whether they would contribute money to support ads against Sotomayor.
Keep in mind that Iowa's Republican caucus electorate is much more conservative than even a wider Republican electorate of Iowa or the country. The issue of judges is one that matters to the very active conservative base of the Iowa Republican Party and so this may simply be a prelude to what may be coming from Huckabee in the next few days or weeks.
