Huntsman Lines Up His Money Men

By on 6.3.11 | 8:59AM

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman has lined up some major bundlers to aid his fundraising efforts. The Wall Street Journal reports:

A list of prominent Huntsman bundlers obtained by Washington Wire includes Georgette Mosbacher, a former Republican National Committee finance co-chairman, and John Mack, the Morgan Stanley chairman who was a big backer of President George W. Bush in 2004 but then switched parties to support Ms. Clinton in 2008.

Also on the list are Peter Malone, a Massachusetts-based corporate adviser who raised more than $250,000 for John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign, and Lady Lynn Forester de Rothschild, a former Democratic operative and Clinton bundler who accused then-Sen. Barack Obama of being "an elitist" after he beat Ms. Clinton in the primaries. Ms. de Rothschild then switched to support Mr. McCain.

Fundraising success could give Huntsman a boost, though expect some of his rivals' supporters to take shots at a former Obama ambassador working with Hillary Clinton bundlers to secure the Republican presidential nomination.
