ST. CHARLES • Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee's appearance at the Family Arena on Sunday has been canceled.

The arena website says the cancellation is "due to circumstances beyond our control" but doesn't elaborate.

People who had bought tickets in advance will get a full refund by going to the point of purchase, the website says.

Huckabee, who hosts a show on Fox News, has been considering making a repeat run for the Republican presidential nomination next year.

He had been scheduled to speak along with conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart at the event.
