Mike Huckabee Saves Someone, But Not the Way You May Think

Much has been made over Mike Huckabee's faith and the fact that he's an ordained Southern Baptist minister. However, Saturday, when he saved someone, he didn't save their soul, but their life.

Robert Pittenger, Republican candidate for North Carolina lieutenant governor, started choking at a lunch Saturday. Pittenger said he was laughing when he choked on some food.

"I stood up and the governor came over and did the Heimlich and got the relief."

Pittenger said the food was dislodged when Huckabee applied the familiar Heimlich squeeze to his midsection. And, Pittenger added, "He called me in the car as I was driving home to make sure I was OK."
