Jeb Bush Jr., the son of Florida’s popular former governor, has endorsed Jon Huntsman for the GOP presidential nomination. Huntsman’s vision will appeal to young voters, Bush wrote in a column on the website of the former Utah governor and U.S. Ambassador to China.

Bush wrote he would be national chairman of “GenH,” the campaign’s youth outreach program and that fellow Floridian, Ana Navarro, who was on Gov. Bush’s transition team and co-chaired John McCain’s Hispanic Advisory Council in 2008, will join the campaign as national Hispanic chairwoman.

“I am confident that Jon's vision will appeal to young voters, who are concerned about the trillions of dollars in debt being piled on their backs, and who desperately seek jobs and economic opportunity,” he wrote.

“Gov. Huntsman is the only candidate with a proven record of creating jobs, in business and as governor. He understands that, as Marco Rubio recently noted, ‘We don't need more taxes; we need more taxpayers.’"
Although Bush’s endorsement does not carry the weight of his father, who has not endorsed any of the candidates, it could help the candidate in Florida.  Bush, who was scheduled to appear with Huntsman in Miami today, said, “Jon is the candidate best-equipped to defeat President Obama next November.

“As more Americans get to know Jon and his record, I'm confident his support will continue to grow. Two years ago, I jumped on board Marco Rubio's campaign when he was polling at 3 percent, and we made history. With Jon, I can't wait to make history again.”
