Huntsman has spent more time in New Hampshire than any other candidate by far, and hopes a solid finish will give him the momentum he needs to head into South Carolina and Florida.
“Our strategy moving forward is getting ahead and steaming out of New Hampshire,” he said in a response to a reporter’s question. “We’ve got to prove the point of electability here. This is why the New Hampshire primary is so critically important. Having established that — and I think you’re going to find that tomorrow night — we can then move on to South Carolina. But you’ve got to prove that you can move a market, first and foremost, and that’s what we’re in the process of doing here.”
“I’m the underdog,” he continued. “We’re working aggressively to the finish line. It’s about getting out the vote. It’s about getting to the polls. And I’m not going to rest until we do that.”
