New ad touts Jon Huntsman’s conservative credentials
In a full-page advertisement in today’s Union-Leader, a conservative shout-out, quoting conservatives such as George Will and Erick Erickson, goes out to Jon Huntsman from a pro-Huntsman group, Our Destiny PAC. The former China ambassador has positioned himself as the moderate voice who could woo independent voters in the race against Obama. Indeed, he has struggled to attract conservative voters with his more moderate stances on global warming, gay rights and other issues that are litmus tests for some conservatives. Now he has decided he must woo conservatives.
