Jon Huntsman sees himself as David fighting Goliath

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. - Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman today agreed with a voter that he is a David fighting a Goliath, referring to his uphill battle with former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who leads the polls in New Hampshire.

Huntsman, the former Utah governor, has been portraying himself as an underdog all week. At a meeting with businessmen today, John Troiano, a financial adviser from Hampton, told Huntsman, “I view you as David going up against Goliath. Goliath has the money, has the cronies…Goliath seems to get most of the media attention. How does David bring down Goliath?”
