Huckabee's Statement on Castro's Resignation

Presidential candidate Mike Huckabee made this statement following Cuban leader Fidel Castro's announcement of resignation.

"The Cuban people deserve nothing less than free and fair elections which would provide the only hope for a prosperous and democratic Cuba. Until Fidel Castro is dead there can be no significant movement towards reform in Cuba.  Raul Castro has proven that he's as much a tyrant and dictator as his brother Fidel.  Simply providing more power to another dictator does nothing to promote freedom and democracy to the Cuban people."
