China Envoy Huntsman May Run for President in 2012 or 2016, Brother Says
Tue Mar 29
By Jack Kaskey -

U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman is interested in running for president in 2012 or 2016, his brother Peter Huntsman said.

Jon Huntsman, a Republican who resigned during his second term as governor of Utah to accept President Barack Obamas diplomatic appointment, may sit out the next presidential election cycle, Peter Huntsman said yesterday in an interview in San Antonio. Peter Huntsman said hes as close to his brother Jon as anyone except his wife.

Jon Huntsman, 51, who speaks Mandarin Chinese, resigned from his ambassadorship in January, effective April 30, fueling speculation he will run for president.

Peter Huntsman, 48, said he voted for Obama and is rooting for the president to succeed. Still, Jon would make an attractive candidate, he said.
