Mike Huckabee's message Tuesday touched on many different issues facing America right now. He spoke to a full house.

People started filing into the Rollins Center early Tuesday evening.

"We're just real excited about what he has to say about which way this country is heading," said Dennis Hammons.

"I hope that he has a message for the American people that will bring us back to being united," said Jamie Bryant.

After much fanfare an audience of hundreds settled in to see what the former governor had to say.

"When we get to the place where we start centralizing power at the federal level... What we've done is reversed and inversed if you will the real balance of how our nation was created," said Huckabee.

Huckabee commented on a variety of issues from the economic bailout, to our forefathers and the founding principles of liberty.

Country music star Lee Greenwood closed the program with one of his famous songs.

Huckabee told us he believes he can win the Republican primary and the presidential election, but he would not say whether or not he would be entering the presidential race.

Huckabee referred many times during his speech to his faith and its importance in his life.

He also had a message for students, telling them they should be paying attention to what is happening in Washington, D.C. right now, because those decisions will directly affect their generation.
