John Heilemann on Andrea Mitchell: Chaos in the Huntsman Camp


Our own John Heilemann spoke to Andrea Mitchell today about his New York cover story on distant cousins and Republican presidential primary opponents Jon Huntsman and Mitt Romney, noting that while a Romney super PAC accepted $1 million from a maybe-fake company, Huntsman’s campaign appears to be in disarray. All in all, kind of a bummer Thursday for the pair of Mormon ex-govs. “A lot of people thought [the Huntsman campaign] was stalled even before this,” Heilemann said. “These are not the kind of stories you want to fight if you’re … trying to make an introduction to the Republican nominating electorate.”
