Though Jon Huntsman himself hasn't donated any money to Reid, Huntsman's parents and brothers gave tens of thousands of dollars to the campaign of the Democratic Senate majority leader (and fellow Mormon) during his reelection race last year, in which he faced off against crazy tea party lady Sharron Angle. And when he was governor, Huntsman appointed Reid's son to Utah’s Board of Regents. Not a great family to be cozy with when you're running for the GOP nomination. [Ralston's Flash/Las Vegas Sun]
