A Florida-based presidential campaign for Huntsman

Published May 19, 2011

The latest sign of Florida's significance in the Republican primary: Former ambassador and Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman plans top base his presidential campaign in Orlando, if he does jump into the race.

Huntsman in St. Petersburg last week made clear that Florida will be a key part of his campaign strategy. His wife grew up in Orlando, and he has a son-in-law from Dunedin. Senior campaign advisers include Susie and Lanny Wiles of Jacksonville.
