RPOF to Jon Huntsman campaign: 'Why you dissing us?'

in Uncategorized by

The decision by Republican presidential candidate Jon Huntsman’s campaign to downplay Florida and call the Republican Party of Florida’s straw poll “diminished” has provoked a response from, well, RPOF.

“The Huntsman team has redefined irony”‘ RPOF spokesman Brian Hughes said in a written statement. “On the day a campaign that polls near last place calls Presidency 5 “diminished” the campaign polling in first place announces it will vigorously compete to win P5. Florida Republicans will help the ultimate nominee win this state and the White House. Why any campaign would choose to disparage the 3500 people who represent the core of our state party’s base defies reason.
