On Tuesday morning, former U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman
makes his candidacy official with a speech in front of the Statue of Liberty, yet already he is under fire from Democrats, reports the Daily Caller
Among the detractors is Wayne Holland, chair of the Utah Democratic Party, who at a conference call declared that he was “disappointed” in the former Utah governor’s morph from moderate Republican to “pandering” conservative.
“Utahans have long appreciated and supported mainstream moderate leaders regardless of party affiliation, who make tough choices and speak their minds,” said Holland. “For many years, Jon Huntsman was a leader like that; one that many of us can respect. But the Jon Huntsman announcing his candidacy tomorrow isn’t the Jon Huntsman Utahans have known.”
