Is Mike Huckabee going to run for president in 2012?

A source close to the former Arkansas governor tells Fox News's Jake Gibson that Huckabee is "literally 50-50" on whether he'll make a second presidential bid next year.

While Huckabee has given mixed signals about his 2012 plans, he's at the very least wading into an area that he's publicly professed to dislike: raising campaign cash.

Per Fox, Huckabee is set to kick off a fund-raising swing soon for his political action committee, Huck PAC. Hitting up donors on behalf of a political action committee is not that unusual in the larger scheme of things--but it's bound to set off a fresh round of speculation about whether Huckabee is testing the financial waters for something bigger.
