Former Arkansas governor, and current presidential candidate Mike Huckabee spoke recently in front of close to 1000 state legislators from around America in San Diego, and spent some time speaking on the importance of the Article V convention of states movement.

“One of the reasons I’m so very supportive of the national effort to invoke Article V of the Constitution,” Huckabee said, “is because it is the only way we will ever be able to devolve power away from Washington and back to the states, as the Founders of this great country intended it to be.”

“Article V is that one fail-safe way to to keep our government from spiraling out of control and restore the balance of power,” Huckabee told the crowd. “The genius of the Constitution is that they built in all kinds of checks and balances so that there would always be a way to rein that power away from the few and redistribute it back to the many.”

Concluding his speech, Huckabee said “let’s get Article V passed and get the power out of Washington and back to the local government.”
