Huckabee: Democrats pitch women on birth control

Posted: Updated:

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee says Democrats are trying to win over female voters by giving them birth control and telling them "they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government."

Huckabee's remarks to the Republican National Committee on Thursday came as he pitched that the GOP needs to broaden its appeal.

Huckabee, a favorite of Christian conservatives and a Fox News personality, used his turn before Republican Party leaders and activists to argue for expanding the appeal of the GOP. The remarks were set to whet the RNC's appetite for a potential presidential campaign in 2016.

Those remarks brought a rebuke from the White House.

Asked about Huckabee's comments, press secretary Jay Carney told reporters it "sounds offensive to me and to women."
