If you blinked, you might have noticed that Jon Huntsman was running for President. His GOP campaign never amounted to much, and it is now over. Huntsman simply couldn't get his message across to GOP voters who were far more conservative than Huntsman.
Huntsman will now throw his support to Mitt Romney, and GOP conservatives will continue looking for the anti-Romney to throw their support to stop the Romney steamroller from taking over. Neither Newt Gingrich nor Rick Santorum are lighting up the conservative votes and there isn't much excitement among voters generally. Everyone, including the candidates themselves, seem resigned to a Romney nomination and are simply going through the motions. However, Gingrich is looking to do all he can to smear Romney because of personal animus.
