Yesterday Jon Huntsman dropped out of the Republican primary contest and endorsed Mitt Romney. On the very same day the The Democratic National Committee released this advert reminding people of some of the negative things that the former Utah governor had to say about the front-running Presidential hopeful.
Romney was the primary target of Huntsman’s attacks during his campaign, so the endorsement might seem strange. However, as Romney is the only remaining moderate, the backing is unsurprising – as the fact that the DNC have had this video made and ready to go illustrates.
There’s some pretty damning quotations in the advert – “I don’t know that he can go on to beat President Obama” being a particular highlight – that no doubt floating voters will be regularly reminded of from now until polling day.
