Huntsman to Drop Out & Endorse Romney

Tomorrow morning Jon Huntsman is expected to withdraw from the GOP race and endorse frontrunner Mitt Romney.

Huntsman’s impending announcement comes scarcely 24 hours after being endorsed by The State, South Carolina’s largest newspaper. But Huntsman’s campaign never really got off the ground finishing a distant third in New Hampshire. He was generally annoying in the debates and simply didn’t resonate with conservatives. The only people who were excited by him were liberals who would have voted for President Obama anyway. Huntsman, of course, had served Obama as his Ambassador to China and upon his resignation referred to him as a “remarkable leader.” If Huntsman held Obama in such esteem then why run against him? His candidacy simply had no raison d’etre.

It’s interesting to see Huntsman endorse Romney given how he liked to say during the debates that Massachusetts was 47th in the nation in job growth when Romney was Governor as opposed to Utah being number one in the nation in job growth when he was Governor. But this is politics. Yesterday’s adversaries are tomorrow’s allies. Whether Obama or Romney is elected, I suspect Huntsman will soon be back in Beijing where he can speak Mandarin to his heart’s content.
