Huntsman running for president

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman (R) will announce a week from today at Liberty State Park in New Jersey that he's running for president, a source tells First Read.

At an event today in New York with Henry Kissinger, Huntsman is expected to say that he will back in the area in a week to make a big announcement.

"Lady Liberty provides a great backdrop for an announcement speech," the source said.

New Jersey is the latest unorthodox move by the Huntsman campaign. They also will headquarter a campaign out of Orlando, FL. Huntsman also did not participate in last night's debate in New Hampshire, even though the Granite State will be key to a Huntsman campaign.
