While the possible GOP presidential contenders don't all agree on strategy for handling the ISIS threat, one thing setting Republican senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio apart in a crowded field is their knowledge on foreign policy. Such inside experience working in Washington allows them to speak with authority on national security measures, giving them a timely leg up and something their gubernatorial colleagues cannot tout, The Hill reports.

In a roundtable meeting this morning with journalists in Washington, D.C., Huckabee said that he would decide next year whether or not he will run for president, but he already knows he's unlikely to support any of those freshman senators. "If not me, I would be supportive of someone who has had executive experience and who has been a governor prior to somebody having only had legislative experience, which I think is fundamentally different in the manner in which one serves," Huckabee said after describing what it takes to be a commander-in-chief.
