Santorum Goes After Huntsman on SBA Pledge


Being a fairly moderate, Mormon, wealthy Republican presidential candidate, Jon Huntsman is already going to have a difficult time separating himself from frontrunner Mitt Romney. 

Now, former Senator Rick Santorum is making it a little harder by drawing another comparison — their abortion records.

Via CNN.com:

One the same day he formally announced his presidential bid, a rival for the Republican nomination criticized Jon Huntsman for not signing an anti-abortion pledge. But the campaign of the former Utah governor and former U.S. ambassador to China was quick to respond.

A web video released Tuesday morning by the GOP presidential campaign of former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania parodies the web videos of a man riding a motorcycle through the desert that the Huntsman team have put out over the past week to tease their candidate’s formal declaration.

But the Santorum video has text that says Huntsman “hasn’t signed the anti-abortion pledge. Just like Mitt Romney…” and then shows the motorcycle crash landing.

Watch the video here.  Apparently Santorum doesn’t want it all over the web…
