In Florence Monday, Huckabee signed about 300 copies of "A Simple Government."
People traveled from all parts of the Pee Dee to meet Huckabee. A few traveled from as far away as Charlotte, North Carolina.
Some people lined up at 9:15 a.m. and said they didn't mind the long wait because they believe Huckabee's principles for life are what it takes to run this country.
A 90-year-old Pageland woman says it was important that she make her way to Florence to see the former Arkansas governor. She's a big fan of Huckabee and always wanted to meet him. She says she watches his show "Huckabee" on FOX News Channel faithfully.
When asked if he will consider a run for president in 2012, Huckabee said he still isn't sure, but plans to make a decision by this summer.
Former South Carolina Governor David Beasley and his wife, Mary Wood Beasley, chatted with Huckabee while he signed books in Florence.
