look up any word, like spook:
 
1.
A political candidate running in a primary election who has no chance of winning the election but refuses to give up their campaign. Often times the candidate runs a campaign to discredit and/or ruin the chances of the clear primary opponent candidate frontrunner or winner as to make them loose in the general election.
Mr. Politician is only running as a Huckapiss. Mr. Candidate is way behind in the polls, but is still running as to be a Huckapiss.
