Tom Ridge 'intrigued' by possible Huntsman campaign
Former Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Ridge (R) said he's particularly "intrigued" by the possible presidential candidacy of former Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman (R).

Ridge, who served in the Bush administration as the first secretary of Homeland Security, said that he was partial to governors — including former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney (R) and former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty (R) — and that Huntsman, a former governor of Utah, stood out.

"I'm partial to governors — governors have to solve problems, don't just give speeches. We've got three really capable governors in this race," Ridge said on CNBC.
