Brewer Interviewed About Republican Presidential Candidates for Arkansas Publications

Brewer was quoted in an article on Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee published by ArkansasOnline and the Northwest Arkansas Democrat Gazette. The article reported Huckabee sat out the four-day Road to Majority event attended by hundreds of conservative religious voters and  nearly a dozen Republican presidential candidates in Washington. The event was held by the Faith and Freedom Coalition and Concerned Women for America, two conservative groups popular with evangelical voters, according to the article. Brewer said predicting which candidate evangelical voters will support in 2016 is not as clear-cut as it was in 2008, the article states. “It’s going to be interesting to see where they ultimately go and who do they ultimately throw their weight behind,” he said, adding Huckabee seems like an obvious choice because of his background as an evangelical minister. Brewer said he was surprised Huckabee didn’t appear at the conference. “That doesn’t make a whole lot of sense to me,” he said. “You would think that would be someplace he would most certainly want to be. He would be warmly received. If I was running his campaign or advising him, I would advise him to be there.”
