Huckabee: If GOP changes on abortion, I'm going 3rd party

Mike Huckabee, talking to a pro-life group in Iowa and delivering a sharp warning to those who think the GOP should shift on abortion (which would, indeed, be a disaster for the party).

"This issue cannot be moved off our platform and if it is, then I’ll meet you somewhere outside the tent and we’ll build a new one.”

UPDATE: Also, while in Iowa, Huck gave this intriguing keeping things open comment on 2016.

“We’ll see. If I’m not here for myself, (then) maybe for someone else. We’ll see,” he said.

Dangling a possible run in front of the press is always good publicity for a media/political figure, so lest Huck fans start getting too pumped about a potential run, that's the big caveat.
