MANCHESTER, N.H. — Officials say that former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman is running for president.

They say that Huntsman — President Barack Obama's former U.S. ambassador to China — will officially join the GOP presidential field June 21 at a site near the Statue of Liberty.

Huntsman was expected to suggest as much later Tuesday at an appearance in New York.

The officials familiar with Huntsman's thinking disclosed the plans to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because the schedule was not yet public.

Huntsman's entry has been expected since he left his ambassador's post in the spring. Since then, he's been visiting early primary and caucus states and putting together a campaign.
