Huckabee ‘Runs’ a Day in NH State Worker’s Shoes

September 10, 2007

Former Arkansas governor and Republican Presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee visited the Women's House of Corrections in Goffstown on Friday to learn about the lockup's running program for inmates. Corrections lieutenant Joe Michaud says Huckabee was so impressed that he wants to help spread the word.

"He was very excited and actually offered to pass the information about our running program on to Running magazine."

Huckabee's visit to the prison was a half-day version of the Service Employees International Union's "Walk a Day in My Shoes" program for Presidential candidates. Union officials say all candidates are encouraged to get a first-hand look at the lives of working people. Others who have taken part in the program include Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Chris Dodd, John Edwards, Barrack Obama, and Bill Richardson.

Michaud says the running program is an innovative way to help ex-offenders stay out of jail, and he's glad Huckabee took a look.

"He thought the running program is very positive and will help get people on the right track to keep them from coming back."

Huckabee also has promised to spend a full day with a union member later in the campaign.
