Former U.S. ambassador toÂ China Jon Huntsman on Tuesday entered the race to unseat his ex-boss, President Barack Obama, starting behind his Republican competitors in the polls but holding the potential to blossom into a strong contender.
“Huntsman has a very narrow window to the nomination but it’s not insurmountable,” said Ford O’Connell, a Republican strategist. “He has made the sell to some big donors and high powered operatives. Now he needs to make a pitch to rank-and-file Republican voters. The rank and file is where the rubber meets the road.”
