With less than two years until the next president is elected, more and more prominent Republicans are inching toward formally declaring their candidacy.

"I think it's pretty evident that I'm moving in that direction," former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday. "I've always said that my timetable is sometime later in the spring and that still is the timetable today."

On ABC's "This Week," Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said a presidential bid is something "I'm seriously looking at." And former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, who finished behind GOP nominee Mitt Romney during the 2012 cycle, said on CNN's "State of the Union," "I think things will work itself out if we decide to get into this race."
