The kitchen sink has officially been thrown.

In an exclusive interview with The Brody File, Mike Huckabee calls out Ted Cruz as a flip flopper on his positions when it comes to immigration, Syrian refugees, ethanol and the role of the federal government when it comes to abortion and marriage. ““Do I want to vote for someone who has had a lot of different positions on every issue out there? They sound very convincing but constantly changes position,” Huckabee tells The Brody File from Cedar Rapids Iowa. Huckabee goes on to list his specific policy concerns with Cruz. Watch the video below along with the transcription.

It goes without saying that Huckabee hasn’t done as well in the polls in 2016 than he did in 2008 but the former winner of the Iowa Caucus wants evangelicals here in this state to understand something very important. “The reasons you supported me eight years ago, I’ve not changed one position. You don’t have video of me saying two different things. You don’t have video of me saying something different in Marshalltown Iowa than I said in Manhattan. If I said it in Washington, I said it in Waukee (Iowa)… I don’t have a lot of different opinions on these issues.”

As for whether or not Huckabee can surprise folks Monday night when the Iowa Caucus takes place, he says, “Iowa people are very independent. They don’t do what the New York media tell them what they’re going to do. They do what they choose to do. I still think we’re going to have a big surprise come February 1st." Huckabee has visited all 99 counties in Iowa and has done hundreds of events. Now he just needs the payoff.

Mike Huckabee: “Do I want to vote for someone who has had a lot of different positions on every issue out there? They sound very convincing but constantly changes position; immigration, Syrian refugees, ethanol, changed his position even on whether abortion is a state issue or a federal issue.

David Brody: “You’re referring to Ted Cruz on this?

Mike Huckabee: Yes. Ted is one of the people you mentioned has had some of the support of the folks that supported Santorum and me (Bob Vander Plaats). Here’s what I can tell those folks: the reasons you supported me eight years ago, I’ve not changed one position. You don’t have video of me saying two different things. You don’t have video of me saying something different in Marshalltown Iowa than I said in Manhattan. If I said it in Washington, I said it in Waukee (Iowa)… I don’t have a lot of different opinions on these issues that I believe are fundamental to the survival of our great republic. I’ve been thoroughly vetted, there’s no surprises and there’s also one thing they can be reassured of; I know absolutely I was born in Hope Arkansas and we have absolutely established that you are eligible to run for president if you were born in Hope Arkansas

Mike Huckabee: Iowa people are very independent. They don’t do what the New York media tell them what they’re going to do. They do what they choose to do. I still think we’re going to have a big surprise come February 1st.
