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.

    Thank you TORI© 11:34 and banasy© 11:36 for having my back while I was not present.
    However, the troll was wrong, as I do intent to accept my party's nomination upon its being offered. I like the grandezza of the office, and the president's car ("the monster") is cool.
