SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Jon Huntsman's record in one of the country's most Republican states presents him with a challenge as he moves toward a run for the GOP presidential nomination.

The former Utah governor must strike a balance between emphasizing fiscally conservative policies likely to attract GOP primary voters and explaining other policies certain to repel them.

Conservatives who dominate the primaries will applaud a statewide flat tax, business incentives and private school vouchers in Utah.

But they probably will cringe at other policies. Those include Huntsman's support of cap and trade as a response to climate change, his backing of civil unions for gay couples, and his support for in-state tuition for illegal immigrants.

Huntsman is returning to Utah this weekend for the first time since stepping down as ambassador to China.
