A campaign spokeswoman for former Arkansas Governor and Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee says he's recovering after having knee surgery in Little Rock.

Spokeswoman Alice Stewart says Huckabee injured his knee on the campaign trail three weeks ago and underwent surgery Wednesday morning at a Little Rock hospital.

Stewart says Huckabee had hoped to go duck hunting while back in Arkansas for the Thanksgiving holiday, but will instead spend the weekend recovering before getting back to the campaign trail Monday.

Huckabee is making his second bid for president after running unsuccessfully in 2008.
