Even presidential candidates enjoy trick-or-treating.

Republican presidential candidate Gov Mike Huckabee of Arkansas stopped at the “trunk-or-treat” at Gospel Open Bible Church on Halloween. It was a low key campaign stop between a pair of speaking engagements in Des Moines that afternoon and a pheasant hunt in Akron the next day with Rep Steve King. Huckabee shook hands and talked with people, and he grabbed a bit of Halloween candy, too.

Mike Huckabee and his staffers all tried Keith Franzen's ring toss game. Note the candy in Huckabee's hand.

Huckabee had started the day at a pheasant hunt/Grassley for Senate reception at Doc’s Hunt Club in Adel. Regardless of how the rest of the campaign goes for Huckabee, he can claim a hunting success. He bagged a pheasant on opening day and even has a video on his cellular phone to prove it.
