CBS News interview with Huckabee chairman Ed Rollins: Does Governor Huckabee have to win Iowa in order to be the nominee?

Rollins: I think Iowa’s very important to him. And I think the bottom line is that we think we’re going to win Iowa. I don’t think we started out expecting to win anything, but I think this is what’s created a great buzz.

And I think, to a certain extent, that’s where we’re putting a lot of our energy. We’d be terribly disappointed–I mean, I think it becomes harder for us to go beyond that, but I think at this point in time if for some reason we didn’t win it, which I certainly have no reason to think we’re not going to, we’re not a multi-millionaire that can spend $100 million of our own money.

We’ve got to have momentum. We have to keep that momentum. We have to convince people as we’re starting that we have a real chance of winning this thing and going all the way. And I think that it’s important to win Iowa.
