Manchester - Jon Huntsman issued the following statement regarding New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner's announcement of the "First in the Nation" primary date:
"I look forward to competing in this great American tradition -- the "First in the Nation" primary -- on January 10th. Bill Gardner has done an excellent job protecting this sacred status and I have been proud to stand with him since day one in support of New Hampshire's rightful place in this process.
"With so many voters still undecided and looking for someone they can believe in, I'm confident that they'll respond to our campaign's bold economic, energy and foreign policy solutions. New Hampshire voters make their decisions based on authenticity and real leadership, not political slogans and pandering."
