Pulling off a must-have victory last night in Michigan’s Republican primary, Mitt Romney appears to be back as a serious contender in the GOP presidential race. But meanwhile, in news more directly related to hunting and fishing, Mike Huckabee, who finished a distant third in last night’s contest, has received the backing of the Bass Boss himself, Ray Scott, founder of the Bass Anglers Sportsman Society (BASS) and the Whitetail Institute of North America.

From the PRNewswire:

_”I am really pumped about Huckabee’s candidacy,” says Scott. “I’ve never been a one-issue voter and I won’t start now, but it’s sure exciting to have an authentic angler and hunter as a candidate. I was thrilled to fid out he’s been a life member of BASS since 1996. Even more important, I’m inspired by his message of hope and prosperity and strength. Like a friend of mine said, he’s the ‘real deal’ and I think more and more people are seeing that.

“I look forward to doing my part to see to it that Mike Huckabee becomes the next President of the United States.”_

Will Scott’s endorsement affect your vote?
