Huntsman is OUT

News tonight is breaking that former Utah Governor and Presidential candidate Jon Huntsman will drop out of the race tomorrow and endorse Mitt Romney.

This was predicted to occur soon, as it seemed throughout the process, Huntsman was perennially at 2% in the ratings and like every other candidate who says good-bye to the race, the money started to dry up. In the end, Jon Huntsman didn't have a chance to win the nomination for many reasons, including the fact that many don't consider him a consistent conservative and as Obama's US Ambassador to China, he had to articulate the goals of this administration that he suddenly decided to oppose in 2012, and it brought out many questions as to whose side Huntsman was really supporting.

Huntsman's departure leaves five left to fight it out in South Carolina and beyond.
