Mike Huckabee, who refuses to cede the GOP nomination to John McCain, continues to accomplish quite a bit with relatively paltry resources.
In a report filed this afternoon with the Federal Election Commission, his campaign reported raising nearly $4 million during January. But it spent nearly $5 million to stay competitive, eating up nearly all the cash he had saved up. The campaign ended the month with about $929,000 in the bank.
The former Arkansas governor won a handful of states on Super Tuesday on Feb. 5, and also won two states on Feb. 9. McCain, however, has swept the contests since.
Huckabee is about 700 delegates behind McCain, who with 957 is getting closer to the 1,191 needed to clinch the nomination, according to an Associated Press tally. But Huckabee is staying firm that he won't drop out until McCain officially reaches the magic number, telling reporters that he will be as dedicated and resolute in the Texas primary on March 4 as the defenders of the Alamo.
