From the Washington Examiner, a commentary that explains why most conservatives in Utah are having second thoughts about electing Jon Huntsman Jr. to the State’s highest office.
Since his election, Huntsman has taken some pretty hard left turns, such as advocating for policies to combat global warming, and vocally supporting same-sex unions.
Now, it appears he is trying to clear his own path to the Presidency by marginalizing conservatives in the Party.
Well, this Utah conservative won’t be supporting him. And, frankly, Barak Obama’s recent decision to send Huntsman to China is the best thing he’s done so far. We’ve got a conservative governor now, who has expressed support for the work of the Patrick Henry Caucus.
It looks like big changes are coming to Utah politics. It’s about time.
