(CNN) – Jon Huntsman is now a former Republican presidential candidate. And, like former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty who dropped out after a poor showing in the Iowa straw poll last summer, Huntsman is endorsing Mitt Romney.
Never mind that Huntsman said some negative things about Romney during his unsuccessful campaign. Pawlenty had coined the phrase “Obamney care” when trying to link Romney’s Massachusetts health care law to President Barack Obama’s health care law. But Pawlenty quickly forgot about that and supported Romney on the campaign trail.
Jon Huntsman believes a win in New Hampshire will elevate him to the top tier of the GOP presidential field. Do you think he can win New Hampshire?

Watch the full interview with Huntsman on CNN's "The Situation Room" at 4 p.m. ET.
Wolf talks with the Republican candidate for president Jon Huntsman on an array of current political issues.
By CNN's Wolf Blitzer
(CNN) - I have to give Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman some credit. He has the guts to suggest specific changes to the nation’s Social Security system – changes that are politically treacherous.
For a politician, whether Democratic or Republican, that’s always dangerous, given Social Security’s popularity, especially with older Americans who rely on it. And remember: older Americans vote in much higher percentages than younger Americans.
Washington (CNN) - You have to give Jon Huntsman some credit. He’s willing to go where none of the other major Republican presidential candidates are willing to go.
He was the only one who actually endorsed the debt ceiling deal worked out between President Obama and the Republican and Democratic leadership. Even former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney, who has a long history of being a moderate Republican, came out against the deal just before it was passed.
