Huckabee suspends campaign for president

(ABCNEWS.GO) — Mike Huckabee announced that he is suspending his campaign for the 2016 presidential race Monday night.

Since announcing his run on May 5, 2015, in his hometown of Hope, Arkansas, Huckabee ran a campaign centered on social conservatism, protecting entitlement programs from cuts and completely revamping the federal tax system.

While he struggled for attention and donations in a crowded Republican field, his controversial comments, at times, attracted attention.
