In other presidential news today, former Republican governor of Utah Jon Huntsman has told the Obama administration he plans to resign as ambassador to China, Bloomberg reports. Earlier this month, a Newsweek profile raised the prospect of a Huntsman bid, as he declined to comment on his 2012 intentions, but said, "I think we may have one final run left in our bones.”
Huntsman was already facing a tough road to the nomination based on his moderate to liberal record as governor of Utah, but once he accepted a post in the Obama administration, it was widely assumed that he was forgoing the idea of running for president.
