Huntsman Miscellany

Jon Huntsman is one of the Republican candidates for president. Chris Cillizza, who writes The Fix blog for the Washington Post, listed Huntsman as one of the winners in this evening's GOP debate:

After a nonexistent performance in the August Iowa debate, the former Utah governor was much more part of the conversation this time around — delivering jabs to Romney and Perry as he tried to contrast his record in the Beehive State with theirs. Huntsman also looked like he belonged on the stage tonight — a major change from his August showing. His biggest problem remains that his tonal approach to the race — sensible moderation — still doesn’t seem to fit the Republican primary electorate. But, for tonight, Huntsman did himself proud.

If you'd like to know more about Huntsman, you might enjoy the video of his appearance on PBS's News Hour. It is an interview with Jeffrey Brown and covers a variety of issues, including taxes, tax code, foreign policy, and some biographical information. The PBS site has video and a transcript.

Wondering how his candidacy might affect the Philadelphia region? Michael Smerconish have his views this past Sunday.
