Huntsman Out. More South Carolina Casualties to Come
Jon Huntsman has dropped out of the race. From the NYTimes:
Jon M. Huntsman Jr. informed his advisers on Sunday that he intends to drop out of the Republican presidential race, ending his candidacy a week before he had hoped to revive his campaign in the South Carolina primary.
Mr. Huntsman, who had struggled to live up to the soaring expectations of his candidacy, made plans to make an announcement as early as Monday. He had been set to participate in an evening debate in Myrtle Beach.
Questions: 1. Does his (probable) endorsement of Romney hurt, help, or have zero effect on the current front-runner? 2. Who's next? and 3. What took him so long?
