Scarborough: If I were in Huntsman’s place, I would probably get out as well

Joe Scarborough: “I wouldn’t call 17 percent disappointing in New Hampshire. He needed to do better to move forward, but even if he’d gotten in the 20s, even if he’d gotten in second place there, the fact of the matter is he wasn’t going to have the bump he needed to get to South Carolina. The great irony of this race, I believe, is that if you believe the Wall Street Journal, if you believe [conservative columnist] Erick Erickson…Jon Huntsman Jr. is the most conservative candidate in this Republican race. And yet he could never connect with conservatives. All that being said, if I were in Jon Huntsman’s place, I would probably get out today as well because much better that he leave with 17 percent in New Hampshire – and you’re now known to the party and you can prepare for 2016 – than losing in South Carolina in single digits or losing in Florida in single digits. Now seems to be the best time for him to get out of the race. I will just tell you on a personal note, I hate to see it because he is one of the few true conservatives in this race.”
