Jon Huntsman, Jr. picked up a noteworthy endorsement from the Boston Globe this past week. Mormon #2 must feel pretty smug about picking up an endorsement from the major paper from the state Mormon #1 governed.
|"So let me get this straight, the paper from your home state endorsed me? That's so funny."||"Yeah, you're still losing."|
But then there is this-
Romney is winning (by a landslide) in polls in Huntsman's home state.
(To be fair, I have googled, searched, and even tweeted the campaign directly to get the source of that poll. I cannot find any polls out of Utah since July.)
Oh and then there is also this-
But good for Jon Jr for picking up an endorsement from one of the most liberal newspapers* in the country. That should help you get one or two more Republicans to like you.
*From the former editor of the Boston Globe, Renee Loth, "The Globe has a long and proud tradition of being a progressive institution, especially on social issues. We are pro-choice; we're against the death penalty; we're for gay rights. But if people read us carefully, they will find that on a whole series of other issues, we are not knee-jerk. We're for charter schools; we're for any number of business-backed tax breaks. We are a lot more nuanced and subtle than that liberal stereotype does justice to."
