Huntsman: No interest in third-party presidential bid

Politics » He also says he’s disappointed in “pandering” of Hatch, other politicians.

He noted that the Republican National Committee uninvited him to a Florida event after he called for a third-party candidate on MSNBC.

He’s not backing off that point, adding that people are tired of the "same-old [Republican/Democrat] duopoly, spending more money on opposition research than on real ideas and visions for the country."

Americans Elect may take a few election cycles to catch on, Huntsman said, but the approach is "revolutionary."

"The key here, which I think is great for politics, is to get more people involved, to allow more people access to politics," Huntsman said. "I believe at some point it’s going to be very viable."

Perhaps then Huntsman will be interested in such a candidacy.
