Huntsman Sends Obama Resignation Letter

by Daniel Foster

Politico reports:

Jon M. Huntsman Jr., the U.S. ambassador to China, sent a resignation letter to President Barack Obama on Monday and now is likely to explore a Republican presidential bid, a close associate told POLITICO. In a letter hand-delivered to the White House, the former Utah governor said that he wants to return to the United States by May, the associate said. If Huntsman won the GOP nomination, he would be challenging the reelection of his former boss. 

An administration official confirms that Huntsman has resigned, but tells Sam Stein that it’s effective April 30.
