Quoting Royals great George Brett, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee bowed out of the Republican presidential race Tuesday night.
"We kept the faith," Huckabee said from Irving, Texas, "and that for me has been the most important goal of all."
Huckabee said he hustled every day of his campaign the same way Brett did during his years as a Royal.
Of Brett, Huckabee said, "He gave it his best all the way to the very end."
