(KCPW News) He’s proud of his Mormon roots, but his membership in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is “tough to define.” That’s what former Utah Governor and Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman told TIME magazine for a new profile piece that has quickly gone viral. Is this a sure sign that Huntsman does not want to be perceived as a Mormon candidate if he runs for president?

KCPW’s Jeff Robinson asked him if Huntsman has ever said anything like this before.
