Haley to Huntsman: Thanks, But No Thanks
SC gov. and former Utah gov. not on the same page "philosophically"
Coming off a debate performance that some analysts found to be impressive, today former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman received a blow to his prospect of winning the South Carolina primary. Gov. Nikki Haley told a conservative radio host that Huntsman is not someone “philosophically I agree with.”
The CNN political ticker explains the ramifications here.
Haley is thought to be South Carolina’s second most-prized endorser after Jim DeMint. Haley has promised to endorse prior to the primary in February, although the impact of her endorsement may be somewhat diminished as her own popularity was flagging in a recent poll.
