Tonight, Huckabee said this:  "People want roads and the people in my state voted by a 80% margin to vote for the roads and pay 3 cents a gallon for gasoline."

But according to Factcheck.org:
"Huckabee claimed a gasoline tax was only passed after 80 percent of voters approved it.  Not true.  The tax was enacted before a referendum vote on highway repairs."
