Wonder how much Mitt paid him off for the endorsement.

Endorsed by the Boston Globe.

Bos. conserv talk host Jay Severin (though, a Mitt fan): “Jon Huntsman has what it takes to be the party’s nominee. Unfortunately for him that party is the Democrats.:”

Drudge says: “Huntsman out, endorses Romney.”

This is something of a surprise as the cousins have had a long rivalry.

I actually found him to be a likeable sort, just with way too many wrong-headed policy ideas. Nowhere near ready for prime-time. Definitely a good producer of daughters ;-)

I guess Newt is making the RINOs nervous in South Carolina. Looks like they are pulling out all the stops in an effort to stop Newt from going into first place. GO NEWT GO!

As usual, all of the Moderates and Liberals coalesce around their front-runner, and almost all of the Conservatives stay in and split the vote just waiting for a series of miracles.

Rick Santorum, are you paying attention? Romney isn’t going to pick you for his V.P., but Newt might. Somewhere inside you must realize this.

Why is it the Conservatives always persist in splitting the vote?

Maybe the race is getting too close. If the negative ads have hurt Romney, maybe he’s worried about some of the Mass. Moderates jumping to Jon. Things might be tightening up.

Can’t imagine a conservative being impressed by McCain’s endorsement or Huntsman endorsement. Hopefully, this will hurt Romney in the south

I'm surprised by this, but glad he did the dignified thing. His internal polling must have been terrible, and he likely saved himself a real embarrassment in South Carolina.
