The suspense is over for Mike Huckabee fans.

The former Arkansas governor is poised to officially announce his candidacy for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination next Tuesday from a place called Hope, and he released a YouTube video this morning that will be played on Tuesday leading up to his speech.

Huckabee ran for the Republican nomination and did surprisingly well for awhile, winning the Iowa Caucus. He decided not to compete in 2012, but quit his Fox News Channel talk show several months ago when he said he was contemplating another bid for the White House.
