Huntsman withdraws from GOP race

Former Utah governor Jon Huntsman will drop out of the race for the GOP presidential nomination on Monday, a campaign advisor confirmed Sunday night.

The decision comes the day he received the endorsement of The State, Columbia, SC's newspaper, and nearly a week after finishing third in New Hampshire - a state where his campaign focused as a pivotal launch pad for his bid.

Huntsman appears to have received little if any boost from New Hampshire, still placing at the bottom of most national and South Carolina polls in the low single digits.

Matt David, a spokesman for Huntsman, told the New York Times, that Huntsman will endorse Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney.

Endorsing Romney, there's a shocker...
