‘Huntsman was bigger threat than Romney’: Obama`s campaign head

Former Utah Gov Jon Huntsman, who dropped out of the White House race, was thought to be the biggest threat to the President’s re-election chances.



New York: Former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman, who dropped out of the White House race, was thought to be the biggest threat to the President’s re-election chances, Barack Obama’s campaign manager Jim Messina has revealed.
Huntsman, known for his moderate credentials and three outspoken daughters, quit the race after betting big on a New Hampshire primary victory, and then placing third behind Mitt Romney and Ron Paul.
But Messina, during a forum sponsored by Politico, said Huntsman might have been the Republican Party’s best chance in the general election.

“We were honest about our concerns about Huntsman. I think Huntsman would have been a very tough general election candidate,” the New York Daily News quoted Messina, as saying.

“We looked at his profile in a general election and thought he would have been difficult,” he added.
