MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is rallying campaign volunteers by saying he can smell success in New Hampshire — and by showing off his presidential campaign’s first television ad.

The ad features Huntsman declaring that, in his words, “we are getting screwed as Americans.” The spot goes on to offer him as a strong leader.

Previewing the ad at Huntsman’s Manchester headquarters on Wednesday, campaign manager Matt David said New Hampshire will push Huntsman onward to Florida.

David predicts Florida will be a turning point in the Huntsman campaign.
