Huntsman to Florida, But No Meeting With Scott

Fresh off a weekend swing through South Carolina where he delivered a university commencement address and met with Gov. Nikki Haley (R), former Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman (R) heads further south to Florida for a two-day swing Tuesday and Wednesday, but he won't be meeting with Sunshine State Gov. Rick Scott (R).

With Scott taking a post-legislative session victory lap around the state, the respective schedules of Huntsman and Scott were not compatible. Huntsman's schedule includes Tampa, Coral Gables and Palm Beach.

It's worth noting that Scott and Huntsman share a connection: Scott's 2010 campaign manager Susie Wiles is currently a top Huntsman adviser.

Huntsman will be in Coral Gables Wednesday and he'll begin his day at the Biltmore Hotel. Gene Prescott, who runs the hotel, and Republican fundraisers Ana Navarro and Manny Kadre, both former allies of Sen. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) 2008 presidential campaign, will be hosting a breakfast for him that morning with fence-sitting donors.

While Huntsman won't meet with Scott this week, he will connect with another big-name GOP governor: Chris Christie of New Jersey is on his Thursday schedule.
