(NEW YORK) -- He's been down this road before but is Mike Huckabee ready to put on his running shoes one more time?
The former Arkansas governor, who stayed in the 2008 race for the GOP presidential nomination longer than anyone thought he would, is considering another bid in 2016.
Or at the very least, Huckabee hasn't "ruled it out," he told Politico Thursday.
With the primary season many months away, the Republican field is wide open with such high-profile names as New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio all being mentioned as potential candidates.
Huckabee is popular among religious conservatives and says that he's been talking with people about the possibility of a White House run although his mind is far from made up.
However, he did express worries that the GOP has "definitely lost our voice to blue-collar, middle-class workers. It’s something I’m very, very concerned about."
