Actually, You've Heard of This Guy

Republicans have heard of this guy! Huntsman has been invited to every presidential debate since he entered the race, skipping one of them (in Vegas) by choice. He's been profiled by The New York Times magazine, National Review, Time, Newsweek, Vogue, New York, etc and etc. In the new CNN poll, 61 percent of Republicans and 63 percent of conservatives say they've at least heard of Huntsman. Buddy Roemer and Gary Johnson, they can play the "media's covering me up" card. Not Huntsman!
