Manchester – After tonight’s ABC/WMUR debate, Huntsman campaign manager Matt David issued the following statement:
“Just hours after a new poll showed our campaign surging into second place, Gov. Huntsman demonstrated to the American people that he is the consistent conservative with the vision, experience and record to defeat Barack Obama, rebuild our economy, and restore trust in our government.
“Gov. Huntsman spoke truthfully to the American people, and distinguished himself on his support of civil unions, bringing our troops home from Afghanistan, avoiding a debilitating trade war with China, and overhauling our tax code with his embrace of Simpson-Bowles style reform.
“While his opponents are either Washington creatures or Wall Street insiders, Jon Huntsman has the independence and bold reforms necessary to take on the establishment and defeat the status quo. His message of overhauling the tax code to end crony capitalism, protecting taxpayers from bailouts by breaking up Too-Big-To-Fail banks, and ending the culture of corruption in Congress is continuing to resonate with voters in New Hampshire and around the nation.”
