Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman is trying to minimize the decision by South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley not to support the former Utah governor. Haley announced her snub over the weekend, Politico reports
Asked by Univision whether her decision was crucial, Huntsman answered, “No, it's not crucial at all. I respect her. I think she's a very good person. I've met her one time.” One of Huntsman’s top campaign officials in the state ran against Haley for governor and barely lost, he noted.
“We just got the endorsement of the Attorney General of South Carolina, the first constitutional officer in the state to come out and endorse anybody. We have a lot of good support in South Carolina. I like our chances there,” Huntsman said.
His early focus is centered on South Carolina, New Hampshire, and Florida.
