Huntsman's Big Endorsement: Jeb Bush Jr.


Bush will join the Huntsman team to coordinate the campaign's youth and young professionals outreach program.

"I am confident that Jon's vision will appeal to young voters, who are concerned about the trillions of dollars in debt being piled on their backs, and who desperately seek jobs and economic opportunity," he said in a statement on the Huntsman campaign site. He notably name-dropped Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) twice in his statement, who has not yet backed a candidate.

Bush previously worked on Rudy Giuliani's 2008 campaign, which ended after a poor showing in Florida despite an intense effort by the candidate to win the state.
