Jon Huntsman dropped out of the race this morning for the GOP presidential nomination, narrowing the field of contenders just days away for the South Carolina primary.

In leaving the campaign, Mr. Huntsman endorsed front-runner Mitt Romney.  There is no indication whether his endorsement will have any effect on the Republican voters to sway them over to the former governor of Massachusetts.  Conservatives and Tea Party voters are not warming up to Mitt Romney but the fact is that he will most likely be the Republican nominee at the end of the process because he has the money to keep on going as the rest drop off.

The former governor of Utah was low on money and in a tie at the bottom with Texas governor Rick Perry.  Although some people thought that Mr. Huntsman was the only adult among the group, he never caught on with the Republican base.
