Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman may be gearing up for a presidential run, but not while he’s back home for a few days. There are no rallies planned, public appearances or fundraising events while he’s in Utah through the weekend, the Deseret News reported Thursday.

huntsman, utah, campaign"This is a personal visit for a couple of days,” said Scott Anderson, president of Zions Bank and a Huntsman backer. “It's not a campaign swing. I'm sure he'll come back to have that swing and campaign coverage and large crowds.”

Huntsman plans to attend his son’s high school graduation. He’s making no public appearances or allowing the media to attend events on his schedule. Even the unveiling of his official portrait as governor at the Governor's Mansion on Saturday is off limits.

Huntsman’s plans a Friday talk to the members-only Alta Club, an event organized by Anderson. That event also will not be open to the public or press.

"It's a luncheon with friends" from Huntsman's time as governor, Anderson said "It's not a fundraiser and it's not a political gathering. Democrats are coming. Republicans are coming … a variety of people, and not necessarily all Huntsman supporters for his run at the presidency.”

Huntsman will likely talk about his experiences serving as U.S. ambassador to China with the group but, Anderson said, "it's not a major policy address."
