Huntsman’s Daughters Discuss Campaign At UMass Lowell
LOWELL (CBS) – The three older daughters of Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman are campaigning for their father in an unconventional way.
WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Bernice Corpuz reports.
The daughters explained at a forum at UMass Lowell on Monday what they went through to produce a campaign video online that has gone viral.
Donning fake mustaches and eye glasses, Liddy, Abby, and Mary Anne Huntsman made a parody of Hermain Cain’s campaign video.
With a scowl on their faces, they pretended to be Cain’s chief of staff Mark Block, but instead of smoking cigarettes, the women blew bubbles.

The women said they came up with the idea to get people’s attention and give their dad some name recognition.
“And if people are going to watch the silly YouTube and go look at my dad’s website, totally worth making fun of ourselves,” said one of the daughters.
The ad leads viewers to their Twitter account, @Jon2012Girls, which now has over 18,000 followers.
