Cornyn: "Pretty clear" Huckabee wants to run in 2012

Hugh Hewitt discusses the 2010 Senate races with NRSC chair Texas Senator John Cornyn, and gets this '12 tidbit:

HH: Let’s talk about Arkansas, Senator Cornyn. Obviously your colleage, Blanche Lincoln, is a liberal Democrat in a state that is red. Now have you got someone in mind yet? Are you able to find someone on the hustings to take her on?

Well, we’ve been talking to Governor Huckabee for his ideas. I think it’s pretty clear he has aspirations in 2012, and not likely to run for the Senate.
