familiar face? >> reporter: a familiar face, name recognition. mike huckabee brings a little something different to the table than the other candidates we saw this week because he's been down this road before. nailed shut is the title of the video mike huckabee is using to kick off his campaign today. >> any drunken redneck can walk into a bar and start a fight. a leader only starts a fight that he's repaired to finish. >> reporter: he will make the announcement from the heart of sclin on the land, hope, arkansas, arguing it's there in small communities, not in washington, where government should have the most power. >> power needs to be local and limited. >> i'm ben carson and i'm a candidate for president of the united states. >> reporter: former arkansas governor follows dr. ben carson and fhpco carly fiorina but huckabee may have an advantage. >> this thing gets more exciting when the governors get in
5:44 am
because the governors have governed. >> the greatest threat we -- >> reporter: huckabee been here before, won iowa in 2008 but failed to win the party nomination. he's popular with evangelical christians but can he win mainstream conservatives? analysts think he's likely to pull republican candidates to the right, especially on social issues. so let's talk about the democrats now because hillary clinton is out today in nevada. in our latest nbc/"wall street journal" poll. numbers are going up but not so much that she's not still beating every single top republican in the race. at least the top four that they polled her against. some of those have declared and some like jeb bush and scott walker haven't come out publicly yet. >> there are a lot of names floating out there. tracie. thanks. live from washington. sam? you mentioned karly 15 written that. she's going to be on the "today" show later this morning. scott mcgrew, she's making the rounds. >> she is.
