Huckabee is in Tulsa today and says Edmondson is more interested in grabbing headlines than in resolving the bitter dispute between the states over poultry litter.

Edmondson's lawsuit contends excess nutrients in poultry litter is polluting rivers and streams in eastern Oklahoma and calls for the poultry companies to pay for cleaning up the water.

Edmondson responded to today's comment by saying Huckabee is an apologist for the poultry companies and said he's more concerned about clean water than anything the Arkansas governor has to say.
