Huckabee is a one-time Southern Baptist preacher who's seen his standing in Iowa surge with Christian evangelicals' support.

Huckabee declined to answer at a news conference today whether he thought Mormonism was a cult.

Huckabee says he's just not going to evaluate other people's doctrines and faiths.

He also resisted wading into theology when pressed to explain why some evangelicals don't view the Mormon faith as a Christian denomination.

Mormons believe that authentic Christianity vanished a century after Jesus and was restored only through Joseph Smith.
