Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said he's increasingly heading toward making a decision on whether to run for president.

"Increasingly, obviously, that's kinda the direction I'm heading," Huckabee said on South Florida First News radio. "I told some people if I walked away from a wonderful gig that I had at the Fox News channel just to have my Saturdays free I need to have my head examined. So clearly, I'm moving in that direction but my timetable is still sometime in the spring."

Huckabee quit his Fox News show in early January to consider a presidential bid, and has been doing radio interviews to promote his book God, Guns, Grits, and Gravy.

Here's the audio of Huckabee:
