It’s been a juicy rumor in Tallahassee: Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, now a Florida resident, could run in 2018 to succeed Gov. Rick Scott.

“There may be somebody thinking about it, but let me be real clear — it ain’t me,” the Daily News quoted Huckabee as saying. “There is a greater likelihood that I will have transgender surgery than I will run for the governor of any state, at any time, or anything, anywhere. It ain’t happening.”
