The Huntsman campaign is moving north for the Winter.
In a restructuring that seemed inevitable, the former Utah governor's campaign will move its headquarters from Florida to New Hampshire, spokesman Michael Levoff confirms.
"As evidenced by recent polling Jon Huntsman's support with New Hampshire voters continues to grow every day," campaign manager Matt David said in a statement, "and this move will ensure that we have the resources necessary to win the First in the Nation primary. Success in New Hampshire is vital for our campaign to have the momentum we need to succeed in South Carolina, Florida, and the states that follow."
The move will include staff layoffs. Some key players, however, will continue in their roles, including David, chief strategist John Weaver, and New Hampshire head Sarah Crawford Stewart. The campaign will keep a presence in Florida and South Carolina.
Huntsman, who saw a bump in a recent poll in the Granite State to 10%, last week acknowledged that he would be focusing singularly on New Hampshire.
Huntsman is due back in the Granite State for more town-hall meetings next week, and he will participate in the next two debates.
