With Huntsman Out, a Void in the GOP Race

Featured BlogHer Network Post

[Editor's Note: Saying, "This race has degenerated into an onslaught of negative and personal attacks not worthy of the American people and not worthy of this critical time in our nation's history," Jon Huntsman dropped out of the Republican presidential race yesterday, endorsing Mitt Romney. At the Latino Politics Blog, Adriana contrasts Huntsman's position on immigration, which she describes as having "moderation and nuance," with those of the rest of the candidates. -- Julie]

Contrast some of Huntsman’s statements with those of Mitt Romney who continues to move to the right on immigration. This week Mitt Romney received the endorsement of Kris Kobach, the Kansas Secretary of State, who has promoted many of the state anti-immigration laws.
