SC Attorney General Wilson Endorses Huntsman

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman’s struggling Republican presidential campaign received a boost in South Carolina Monday. State Attorney General Alan Wilson, son of Rep. Joe Wilson, R-S.C., endorsed him.

"It does no good to be a conservative if you can't sell a conservative message in a general election," Wilson said in his announcement of support.

Huntsman, speaking to Fox News before the endorsement, said "I like our chances in South Carolina. This is just the beginning," The Hill reports.

President Barack Obama’s former ambassador to China now is centering his efforts on the primaries of New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Florida.

Huntsman is trying to reinvigorate his presidential bid with more public appearances and attacks on the other candidates. He is set to offer a jobs plan Monday, beating fellow presidential aspirant Mitt Romney and Obama to the punch.
