A small group of supporters for Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee held up signs along Route 29 in front of the Toys 'R Us in Albemarle County Saturday afternoon.

They say despite their candidate's fading momentum and his slumping poll numbers, they have faith in the former Arkansas governor heading into Super Tuesday.

"He's definitely still in the race," proclaimed Huckabee supporter Carrie Wigal. "Only eight percent of the delegates are accounted for at this point. There's still 92 percent of delegates out there and he is very much in this race and there's people that are all over the country that are supporting him."

Huckabee won the Iowa caucus but has failed to gain traction since.

Voters here in the commonwealth will head to the polls a week from Tuesday.
