Jon Huntsman seeks middle ground in GOP's 2012 race

Waving off his low poll numbers, GOP presidential candidate Jon Huntsman insisted Monday that he is a "mainstream conservative" who can win South Carolina's Republican primary. Huntsman — a 51-year-old, motorcycle-riding, gun-owning father of seven — is positioning himself as a moderate who can win voters in South Carolina's first-in-the-South primary in February and, more importantly, independents in the general election.
