Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee didn't say too much about the results of the Florida primary while speaking to a crowd in St. Louis, Missouri, Tuesday night.
He spoke briefly and resigned to come in either third or fourth in the Sunshine State.
"We are rehearsing for the victory speech we'll be able to give about Missouri next week," he said to supporters gathered there.
"Between now and seven days from now there's going to be something that we'll all be shouting about," he added. "And it won't be just a Missouri thing, but also that same night they'll be one in Georgia and Alabama and Tennessee and they'll be one in Arkansas and Oklahoma and maybe a few other places that people aren't even expecting it to happen."
He assured everyone in attendance, "We're playing all nine innings of this ball game - even the Cardinals occasionally have a rough inning but they know how to win championships."
Huckabee explained that they had only expected about 100 people to show up for tonight's rally, but the small banquet room at the Drury Inn was packed with close to 300, according to ABC News.
Huckabee apologized to his supporters for his brevity, citing the weather and the fact that he had campaign and debate obligations in Southern California tomorrow and that he would be leaving tonight, directly from the event.
"We've gotta be at the Reagan library tomorrow night. I'm gonna be on that stage tomorrow night. I'm not sure everybody's gonna be there but I will be."
