Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee is firing back at an anti-tax group running ads that accuse Huckabee of being a tax-and-spend liberal.
Huckabee, the former governor of Arkansas, fired off a bunch of statistics during a Thursday afternoon campaign stop in Ames.
"I enacted the first-ever tax cuts in the history of my state. I cut taxes 94 times — a $400 million tax reduction," Huckabee said. "I left the state with an $800 million surplus. We had the lowest unemployment rates."
The Club for Growth is running ads in Iowa, hinting that Huckabee is like another former Arkansas governor — Bill Clinton.
