Jon Huntsman

On the same day that Jon Huntsman received an endorsement from The State, South Carolina’s largest newspaper, the former Utah governor and ambassador to China dropped out of the GOP presidential nominating race and threw his support behind Mitt Romney. "I believe it is now time for our party to unite around the candidate best equipped to defeat Barack Obama," Huntsman said at a news conference. "Despite our differences and the space between us on some of the issues, I believe that candidate is Gov. Mitt Romney."
