Huntsman: Republican Race Wide Open In New Hampshire

By Holly Ramer, Associated Press

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.

    I like Jon Huntsman. Like him a lot from what I have heard about him. He’s honest, down to earth, and true to what he believes in. He’s not like the rest of them, full of themselves. The Republicans should really take a good look at this man instead of Mitt and the rest who seem to be full of hot air.

    I attended the debate/discussion with Gingrich, and came away with an admiration for Huntsman and his acute knowlege of foreign policy and China.
    I don’t know if he can win the election but he’d be a fantastic Secretary of State. I think people have underestimated his ability to lead this country out of the morass we are in today, with his stable direct approach.

    Totally agree with both of you! When your own party doesn’t like you (Gingrich) that says a lot. People need to ask why PA residents didn’t re-elect Santorum. We don’t trust him and he’s self focused. I really hope Huntsman can make a run for it – there finally seems to be a candidate I can get behind and support!
