The Politico’s Roger Simon is reporting that Mike Huckabee has no buses:
Mike Huckabee does not have buses.
Huckabee needs to get people to the straw poll in Ames this Saturday and even if he had the money for buses — which he doesn’t — there are no buses left to rent.
Jonathan Martin is reporting that Sam Brownback, among others, has buses:
An Iowa Republican said that Romney was bringing about 125 onto the campus of Iowa State University and Brownback just over 100. Tommy Thompson is bringing the third most, about 75.
What I don’t understand is why Brownback has the money but Huckabee doesn’t. They had almost the same end of Q2 CoH. Either Huckabee just doesn’t have the bodies, or Brownback is blowing smoke. But I can’t see how Huckabee can’t afford buses when Brownback can afford 100.
