Mike Huckabee was quickly surrounded by a crowd of supporters in the Fort Worth Stockyards Friday afternoon.
After getting a brief lesson, he started swinging a rope, trying to lasso a bale of hay. He wasn't having much luck with that, but he did capture the attention of his supporters.
"I can't begin to tell you how critical it is for us to win Texas next Tuesday," said Huckabee, the Fort Worth-trained Baptist preacher turned politician. "A whole lot of people throughout the country think this race is over.
"Texans represent the largest Republican block of voters in the country," he said. "It would be a real shame if the people outside of Texas told people in Texas who were going to vote for."
