Jon Huntsman launches another run for Utah governor

Source: Politico

Jon Huntsman, the former Utah governor, one-time presidential candidate and ambassador to China and Russia, announced Thursday he will run for governor again in 2020.

Huntsman, a Republican who most recently served as President Donald Trump's ambassador to Russia, made the announcement Thursday morning on KSL Radio.

"We are so very honored and humbled to announce my candidacy for governor of the greatest state in America," Huntsman said, sitting with his wife, former Utah first lady Mary Kay Huntsman, at a hotel in southwestern Utah.

Huntsman served as governor from 2005 to 2009. He was seen as a likely 2012 presidential candidate before resigning to become then-President Barack Obama's ambassador to China.

1. Beating Romney's son to the punch!

Yes, the Romney’s built a couple of adjacent mansions in Salt Lake City’s swankiest Private neighborhood just after Mitts 2012 defeat. One has a “Rose Garden-like” walkway.

2. Sorry to say,I told you so.

Nothing happens in Utah without a Temple Square approval. Got to keep the Sheeple pacified. Tons of angst within the ranks,defections from the GOP needed addressing.
