Huntsman's Family Has Donated $25,000 to Reid

Wednesday, 22 Jun 2011 04:15 PM

Newly announced GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman and his family have forged close ties to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., over the years. Although Huntsman never has donated to a Reid campaign himself, members of his family, including his parents and brothers, have sent $25,000 to the Senate’s top Democrat, the Las Vegas Sun reported.

While governor, Huntsman appointed Reid’s son, Josh, to Utah’s Board of Regents. Huntsman’s father even spread the goodwill to Democrats in general, sending $5,000 to the Nevada Democratic Party in 2008, according to the Sun.

Apparently the warm feelings are mutual. Reid said this week that he prefers Huntsman, who was President Barack Obama's ambassador to China until recently to front-runner Mitt Romney. “If I had a choice in that race, I’d choose Huntsman over Romney,” he said according to the Sun.
