"Naturally, I am going to go with someone that philosophically I agree with, and Jon Huntsman is not it."Was it something Huntsman said? There was a republican debate the night before. Huntsman stood on a stage full of know-nothings, and this is what The New York Times reported about his remarks:
Just one candidate, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, defended climate research and warned that voters won't elect a Republican who ignores scientific findings."You can't run from science," but it appears as though South Carolina's governor and all but one of the candidates for the republican nomination want to run from it, and it's quite possible that Jon Huntsman's candidacy for the republican nomination is doomed if republican primary voters are know-nothings, too.
"When you make comments that fly in the face of 98 out of 100 climate scientists, to call into question the science of evolution, all I am saying is that in order for the Republican Party to win, we can't run from science," Huntsman said. "By making comments that basically don't reflect the reality of the situation, we turn people off."
CNN has "TRENDING: Haley rules out Huntsman endorsement," and The New York Times has "Huntsman Warns That GOP Can't Win the White House by Denying Climate Science."
