Huckabee concedes New Hampshire
With 30 percent of precincts reporting, trailing John McCain (38%) and Mitt Romney (29%), Mike Huckabee (12%) conceded New Hampshire at a little past 8 p.m. tonight. But it sounded more like a victory speech.
Huckabee said he was thankful that an "unknown Southern boy" could do so well up north and said that when he comes back to New Hampshire as the Republican nominee, "I'll even learn how to say 'chow-da.'"
Strangely absent from the proceedings was Chuck Norris, who is apparently a fairweather friend.
