Huckabee Praises Phil Robertson

Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, who earlier said he was praying about running for president in 2016, admitted Sunday that he is interested in another bid. He also defended "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson, who was suspended from the show for his remarks against homosexuality.

"It would be, frankly, dishonest to say no," the 2008 Republican presidential candidate told "Fox News Sunday" after being asked if he was considering another run.

Huckabee, a Fox News commentator, said there is a "50-50" chance he will run, adding his final decision would still come from the heart and that the GOP already has "a strong stable of candidates" for 2016.
