“The Democrats and their accomplices in the media want you to think what I said is unpopular and outdated. They are going to look at our PAC’s fundraising and say, ‘See we told you so,’” Huckabee wrote to allies.

The GOP has struggled to win back female voters and has worked to soften its rhetoric on reproductive rights. As part of Democrats’ national health care law, insurers have to provide free contraception.

Huckabee’s prescription might complicate that effort and diminish enthusiasm for his name appearing among the potential Republican contenders.

Huckabee ran for the White House in 2008 and has kept in touch with the party activists in Iowa and South Carolina who were with him then. At the same time, he has been talking with allies who would help him raise money if he decides to run.
