Matthew Jaffe | Jon Huntsman: I could get behind Trump

Matthew Jaffe, CNN:

Chicago (CNN)Former Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman said Monday that he would be inclined to support Donald Trump if the controversial real estate mogul secures the GOP nomination.

“If he’s the nominee, I’m a Republican and I tend to gravitate towards whomever the nominee is,” Huntsman, who lost the 2012 Republican presidential primary to Mitt Romney, told CNN senior political commentator David Axelrod on Axelrod’s podcast “The Axe Files.”

Huntsman said Trump is looking more likely as the Republican on the ballot in November. “I just happen to think that this go-round we have a very unusual possibility if he makes it that far. And I think the chances are better than 50-50 that he makes it to the finish line in terms of the nomination.”
