WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Former GOP presidential contender Mike Huckabee has endorsed Woody White's congressional bid, according to a press release from White's campaign.  

"I've known Woody for years, and I can tell you that his faith in the people of North Carolina is unshakeable," Huckabee said. "He shares my optimism for the future of our great nation and he believes that balanced budgets, lower taxes and smaller government are a better plan for our future than catastrophic debt, tax hikes and intrusive power grabs like ObamaCare." 

White is running in the Republican primary for the 7th congressional district. 

White first met Huckabee while introducing the former Arkansas govenor to voters in eastern North Carolina in 2007, according to the press release.  

Huckabee said White "has my full support," and "frankly, America is in dire need of strong leaders willing to upset the status-quo apple cart in Washington.  Woody is that type of leader."
