Huntsman To Meet With Horizon PAC Officials Monday

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman, the retiring U.S. Ambassador to China, will be huddling with potential campaign advisers aligned with the political committee formed in his absence -- Horizon PAC -- on Monday, according to a key supporter. Huntsman, whose term as ambassador expires at midnight, returned to Washington Friday, quickly switching gears from diplomat to possible presidential candidate.

Federal law precludes a member of the administration from engaging in campaign activities, so the team has literally had no contact with the man they want to run for president.

His immediate plans also include attending the White House Correspondents Dinner on Saturday evening.

Huntsman's first scheduled forays into early primary states will come next month, when he delivers college commencement speeches in South Carolina on May 7 and New Hampshire on May 21. Those two states, along with Florida, are thought to be pivotal to any campaign strategy Huntsman might employ.
