Source to CNN: Huntsman to drop out of presidential race

Republican candidate Jon Huntsman will drop out of the presidential race on Monday, a senior official with the former Utah governor's campaign told CNN.

He will endorse front-runner Mitt Romney, the source said.

Last week, Huntsman finished third in the New Hampshire primary, a state in which he had staked his entire campaign, finishing behind Romney and Texas Rep. Ron Paul.

    I meant "intend," not "intent."
    I hate making mistakes. Thank God, I seldom make them.

    Good riddance. Now if the rest of them would just quit we could finally have a quiet re-election without the need for overblown lying.

      News-flash! There exists a plethora of evidence as to any one of the GOP candidates qualifications in becoming US President. And it remains to be seen as to the depth of regret this Country has in giving the office to a complete slick talking TelePrompTer sound-biting greenhorn who's demonstrated nothing but division in his attempt to promote the socialist agenda, hopefully the Country will have learned its lesson and elect a uniter...... See you at the polls.

    @ Leslie! No 1 can touch (literally) Guv'nah Goodhair in the excecutive hair department! I believe that would've been Perry's 1st excecutive order as pres, ditch the EPA for the Excecutive Hair Dep. or EHD! This is unconscionable because we'd sorely Need the EPA after he sprays the ozone full of haircare products! No excecutive hair having politician thinks about the important issues, anymore, it's just hair, hair, hair all day & nite w/them! Sheesh!!
