Huntsman won't take sides in potential Hatch-Chaffetz battle

Former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman (R) said he won't be taking sides in a potential home state primary between Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) and Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah).

Huntsman declared his intention to stay neutral if Chaffetz, his former chief of staff, decides to follow through with a primary challenge against the Senate veteran Hatch, who's endorsed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's (R) campaign.
