Huntsman to Leave Ambassador Post

Former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, Jr.

(KCPW News) It’s official: after less than two years on the job, former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman will step down as Ambassador to China within a few months. The White House confirmed the news yesterday. Huntsman hasn’t curbed any speculation that he’s now planning to run for President in 2012. But is it premature to talk about the moderate Republican making a run for the White House? KCPW’s Jeff Robinson posed that question to Quin Monson, Associate Director of the Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy at Brigham Young University.
