The Christie Primary

Jon Huntsman, the former Utah governor, is heading to Trenton:

Huntsman, a fluent Mandarin speaker, has dived into preparations for a possible campaign. Last Sunday, he held a series of meetings with his advisers. He later traveled to New York to meet with prospective donors and fundraisers. In South Carolina this weekend, he met with newly elected Republican Gov. Nikki Haley and with state Attorney General Henry McMaster, who praised him effusively.

Stops next week will include more sessions with fundraisers and a meeting with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who has captivated many Republicans with his tough talk about getting spending under control and who has ruled out running for president in 2012.
