Huntsman moving toward entering presidential race soon
Former Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman is inching toward finally entering the race for the Republican nomination, he said in interviews over the weekend.

The former two-term governor of Utah told CNN Sunday that he's "about a week and a half out" from shedding the "potential" label, and formally becoming a Republican candidate for president.

"We're moving in that direction," he told Bloomberg Television on Sunday when asked if he's running. "We've got all the boxes checked — the organizing box, the fundraising box, you've got the boots on the ground box, and you've got the family box that is the last one. We'll probably have one more sit-down meeting this week, and then I think we'll be ready to check that box."
