Mike Huckabee on the Death Penalty

Mike Huckabee supports the death penalty. In his book, From Hope to Higher Ground, he described the death penalty as "a tough issue." He wrote that he believes "some crimes deserve it, but that does not mean I like it."
He also described carrying out the death penalty as the worst part of his job as governor of Arkansas.

In a December 2005 interview on PBS that he said that he has had to "carry out the death penalty more than any governor in the history of my state" and that "it is not something I'm proud of."
