Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee better learn some manners! Neither the Republican nor his campaign managers have made any attempt to contact Jeanne White-Ginder. From HRC:
One week after requesting to meet with Republican presidential candidate Governor Mike Huckabee, Jeanne White-Ginder, the mother of Ryan White, the Human Rights Campaign or The AIDS Institute, still have not heard from Gov. Huckabee or his campaign. The meeting was called in response to Gov. Huckabee’s 1992 remarks, that he refused to repudiate, when he said people living with HIV and AIDS should have been “isolated” even after it was determined the virus was not spread through casual contact. The morning after HRC and The AIDS Institute sent a letter to the Huckabee campaign requesting a meeting, the Governor said, “I would be very willing to meet with them.”
An HRC supporter reportedly asked Huckabee about a meeting and Huckabee said he didn’t know how to get in touch with White-Ginder. His staff has since been given White-Ginder’s contact information. We’ll see if he actually follows up.
A note to Mike Huckabee: If you or your staff are reading this, Huckabee, we suggest you meet with Ginder-White before the Iowa Caucuses. Just a tip.
