Mike Huckabee of AR is arguably a precursor to MAGA, along with Pat Robertson and Pat Buchanan. I think the primary difference is that Robertson and Buchanan are outsiders an Huckabee was more acceptable to the establishment. One could argue that Huckabee and Sarah Palin possibly normalized Robertson and Buchanan into the GOP. Just a theory. 

His actions:

Huckabee, Mike 2005 Rising star in GOP leads Nat Gov Assoc while serving as Gov of AR
