ST. PAUL, Minn.– Former presidential candidate Mike Huckabee said he doubts the pregnancy of the vice presidential candidate’s teenage daughter will have much impact on the Republican ticket.

Shortly after addressing New Jersey delegates at their hotel in St. Paul, Huckabee said the surprise pregnancy announcement should not affect vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin’s support in the conservative and religious right communities.

“It ought to be a reminder that here is a family that loves one another. They stuck with each other though the tough times and that’s what families do,” Huckabee said.

Huckabee, who came in second in the Republican presidential primaries, was considered the more right-leaning, conservative candidate in the race.

He said Palin did the right thing by announcing 17-year-old daughter Bristol will keep her baby and marry the child’s father.

“I’m grateful for the way she’s being supported by her family. As she should be,” Huckabee said.
