Even if Mike Huckabee gets drubbed in today's New Hampshire primary, it's increasingly clear that the former Arkansas governor's victory in Iowa is providing a massive boost. The most recent

SurveyUSA numbers

in South Carolina show Huckabee with a commanding 17 point lead (Huckabee, 36; Romney, 19; McCain 17). And yesterday's announcement that Minnesota GOP chair Ron Carey will

head up the folksy Baptist preacher's campaign in the state

is another shot in the arm. The endorsement should prove a nice counterbalance to Gov. Pawlenty's backing of McCain.
