Former presidential candidate and Romney-backer Jon Huntsman on Thursday pushed for a third party candidate in the next election, which he said would address the issues the "broken" Republican Party has ignored. He also said that he is "not a surrogate for anybody."
Huntsman, who endorsed Mitt Romney after he dropped out of the presidential race, went on the attack against the Republican Party and the debate process on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. However, he expressly said that he would not run as a third-party candidate.
“I'm not a surrogate for anybody,” he said. “All I can say is I'm looking at the political marketplace. And I'm saying this duopoly is tired and we're stuck in a rut. We're not having the discussions in this country that we need to have.”
