PITTSFIELD, N.H. -- Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman says "nobody cares" about Sen. John McCain's decision to back rival Mitt Romney in the Republican presidential race.
Huntsman had campaigned for McCain in New Hampshire in 2007 but now says McCain's expected endorsement of Romney is just another example of the establishment piling on. Huntsman says none of Romney's endorsements has meant anything. Yet Huntsman touts his own endorsement by former Homeland Security Secretary Tom Ridge.
Ridge and Huntsman toured a New Hampshire company that makes firefighting suits on Wednesday as the GOP candidates head here to campaign for the state's Jan. 10 primary.
Huntsman skipped Tuesday's Iowa caucuses and says the close vote there bodes well for other candidates still in the race.
