Huntsman in the Face of Long Odds

GREENLAND, N.H. 10-15-11

Jon Huntsman is betting big on New Hampshire as his presidential campaign struggles to survive.

Two weeks have passed since the former Utah governor moved his national headquarters to New Hampshire.

Despite what some aides say, it was a move of necessity, not preference.

The campaign is shedding staff by the dozen. Poor fund raising numbers become public this weekend.

Huntsman, the Obama administration's former ambassador to China, is barely registering on national polls.

Lacking the money to run television ads, he's relying upon shoe leather.

Huntsman hosted seven New Hampshire town halls last week.

That's more New Hampshire town halls in one week than most of his rivals hosted all year.

He plans to boycott Tuesday's debate in Nevada in favor of staging another New Hampshire gathering.
