CONCORD, N.H. (AP) — Republican presidential hopeful Jon Huntsman says Rep. Ron Paul's campaign is out of line with a web ad that uses images of Huntsman's adopted daughters to argue that he doesn't hold American values.
The ad includes video footage of Huntsman, the former ambassador to China, speaking Chinese to his now-12-year-old daughter Gracie as an infant. In Concord Friday, Huntsman called the ad "stupid" and said he objects to suggesting that there is something sinister in his decision to adopt Gracie, and later another daughter from India.
Huntsman has spoken movingly of his daughters while on the campaign trail. Gracie was abandoned at a market at two months of age. Huntsman's other adopted daughter was left to die on a roadside in India the day she was born.
