Hiram College political science professor Jason Johnson was interviewed by the Edinburgh Scotsman for the article “Jon Huntsman withdraws from race to top job.”
There was speculation that Mr Huntsman’s candidacy was a trial run to gauge popularity for a more serious campaign in 2016. But as analysts have pointed out, such a strategy would rely on the eventual Republican nominee losing to Mr Obama this year.
Jason Johnson, professor of political science at Ohio’s Hiram College, said: “I think we’ll see him ride off into the sunset like so many Republican Party candidates in the past. If Romney wins the election, there is no room for Jon Huntsman in 2016.”
