Duncan Hunter, Representative from California and former presidential candidate,  has endorsed Mike Huckabee for president, a move that may strengthen Huckabee’s standing among border hawks, southern Californians, and Hunter’s own former supporters.

In a statement released Wednesday, Hunter said “Of the remaining candidates I feel that [Huckabee] is strongly committed to strengthening national defense, constructing the border fence and meeting the challenge of China’s emergence as a military superpower that is taking large portions of America’s industrial base.  Along with these issues…I see another quality of Mike Huckabee’s candidacy that compels my endorsement.  Mike Huckabee is a man of outstanding character and integrity.  I saw that character over the last year of campaigning and was greatly impressed.”

It’s unclear at this time whether Hunter intends to campaign for Huckabee.
