Mike Huckabee Encourages Romney Supporters to Suppress Voter Turnout at North Carolina Rally
Prior to Romney’s address, Huckabee made some peculiar remarks raising questions of GOP campaign ethics. Huckabee said Republican voter turnout is essential to a Romney win, and even suggested preventing Democratic voters from getting to the polls.
"If you've got friends and neighbors who tell you that they're going to vote for Obama, tell them the election has been postponed until December," he said. "Don't let these people out of their house that day. Let the air out of their tires if you have to."
North Carolina is one of handful of battleground states where both the campaigns of Romney and Obama are spending time and resources and lots of money on advertising. Obama narrowly won North Carolina's electoral votes four years ago.
