In Washington, Congress is preparing for a vote on President Obama's request for funding to help Syrian rebels fight ISIS. At this stage, it looks like the proposal will be handled as an amendment to the continuing resolution that will fund the government past the end of the September 30th fiscal year.
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.

Huckabee bashed those who detest unions and those who trash employers - and rightly so. Success today hinges on a balance between the "job creators" and the "job holders" based on mutual respect, fair treatment and job satisfaction.
A spokesman for Gov. Mike Beebe today brushed away a suggestion that politics played a role in the addition of a "do not rehire" message to Leslie Rutledge's personnel file after she resigned as a staff attorney at the Department of Human Services in 2007.
