Apparently Dropping Out Is Better Than Third Place

Bachman, Now Huntsman: Who Will Be Next?

Presidential candidate John Huntsman, who thought he was doing fine coming in third place in the recent New Hampshire primaries just last week, has decided to drop out of the presidential race altogether.

The former Obama administration's ambassador to China said he "didn't want to stand in the way of the candidate most prepared to beat Obama and turn around the economy."

The 'candidate' he's referring to is Mitt Romney who currently holds a first place lead in the running in front of Perry, Santorum and Gingrich.

"Despite our differences I believe that candidate is Mitt Romney", said Huntsman.

Listen to Huntsman's 'most important' speech, conceding his candidacy.

The next stop for the remaining candidates move to South Carolina.
